Unfortunately, no. It seems that the more you want it, the longer it takes. Just go with the flow and don't try too hard.

Sometimes it takes time, especially if you're just coming off BC. It can take a healthy couple a year or so to TTC a child. It only seems that it happens instantly when the person isn't TTC or shouldn't TTC.

Other than that give it time and have fun. Usually it'll happen when you least expect it we gave up on trying and boom I got pregnant lol.

I wish there was a fast way but unfortunately there isn't. Like the other ladies said, tracking and having sex every other day is your best chance.

It took me and DH 6 months after I got off the pill. Unfortunately that pregnancy ended in miscarriage (a year ago tonight actually) not saying yours will too! Just saying it could be a while. I would buy an OPK so you know when you're ovulating and make sure you're both eating foods that help fertility (google them). Good luck!

Didn't work how? Didn't get a positive OPK or because you didn't get pregnant? Even in healthy, fertile women most eggs don't have what it takes to make a baby. That's why the chance to conceive for each cycle is at most, 25%. Using OPKs will increase your chances of catching the egg. Good luck!

THIS!!! When DH and I were trying to conceive our DD, it took us almost 5 years. When she turned 18 months, I stopped taking BC so we could "start" trying, thinking it would take a long time that time as well. I wasn't really "trying" and had actually forgotten about it until I found out I was pregnant again the next month! Our next baby girl is due in 27 days. Weird how our bodies work!
