Hi I was wondering how soon can you get pregnant after stopping the pill? I have been through alot in the past year, loosing twins last Feb and having a D&C. Just went off the pill around 2/3 wks ago & due anytime now for my period.I will be 34 this summer & just wondering if my age has anything to do with it. I have 2 older boys but I had them in my 20's with no problems. I had a miscarriage about 5 years ago, got pregnant in Oct '10 & delivered twins at 23 wks. Lost them both, had a D&C & was told I could still get pregnant. Just nervous & scared. Is it true your really fertile after stopping bc? Or is that a wives tale? I feel "old" with all my body's been through. I am very healthy so I hope it can happen one more time for us!
No I did not finish my pack. But looks like today Aunt flow is on her way! We just moved so I need to find a doc anyway. We are military so I never have the same doc for anything!
So since it looks like my flow is coming, maybe I will start to get on track again. Thanks for the info! I dont even know if it will happen again for us, with all the trouble we've had.....but we will try!View Thread
I too feel you! (Hugs!) I also had a d&c last year after I lost my twins at 23 wks. It was horrible. But we are trying again and we dont know what will happen. I too was afraid that after having that done, would I be able to conceive again? We just started trying in Feb. My last period was Feb 4th & I went off the pill shortly after that. Nothing so far.............. I can understand your feelings because I am in the same boat with you! Good luck! View Thread
My last period was Feb 4th. I went off the pill shortly after that. Can you skip a month or just be really late? I took a test about 2 wks ago and it was neg. We are trying again, but I thought I'd get a lil something. Any idea's? ThanksView Thread
Thanks it does. I have been through this alot but never after loosing a child ( in my case 2!) And having a d&c. So I was unsure what my body would or would not do! Ill be 34 this year, so I think time is a lil against me! We are trying, if it happens then great, if not, well I know we tried. I have 2 angels in heaven looking out for me!
Before! When you ovulate its too late! Which we found out. I think our timing was off a lil! My doc told me that you release an egg 14 days after you start your period. ( your full flow, not spotting) So on day 10, 12 & 13 have sex. Sperm can live inside for a lil while....then your egg is released on the 14th day. Its like the sperm is a lil taxi cab waiting for the egg to hitch a ride....then before you know it, a baby is there! My doc said the sperm should be there waiting for our egg....if you wait till your ovulating its too late, in most cases. Hope I explained that right! Good luck!View Thread
Thank you all for responding! So maybe we've been missing the timing the last cpl months! UGH! But your right...we've tried to not think about it....like so what who cares....type attitude. But its very hard. We have children from previous marriages...but we just want one child between us. We are in the military (USMC) as well...& as wonderful as hubby is.....he gets stressed w work. Iver heard that if the hubby is stressed it can alter things.....so idk. But I greatly appreciate the comments! I was due yesterday for my period....i took a $ store test Thurs & it was neg....so maybe this month it didnt happen. But no flow as of yet....so still hoping!
