TTC UPDATE ~ Mrs. Gioia ~ TTC since May 2013; 3 kids; Kissimmee, Florida 471 posts

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything on here. It has been almost 5 months since I have been ttc and still nothing. My cycles are normal. And I don't remember having this much difficulty when I went ttc with my youngest. We were expecting after the first try. Could something be wrong? I know that there are women that take longer to conceive then me, How long did it take to conceive after getting off the trisprintec pill? For any of you ladies that were on it.

The pill will take a couple of months to get out of your system entirely, then it can take a healthy couple with regular cycles from 6-9 months to conceive.



Stress, being overweight, being sedentary, eating a high fat diet can all contribute to issues with conception.



Are you taking vitamins?
How are you tracking your cycles?

I have an app I am using to track my cycles. And as of right now I am taking vitamin D.

A lot of the time an app isn't enough to accurately track cycles. They are useful for knowing when your periods are due but as far as ovulation, it can be way off.

Didn't know that. How else can I track ovulation? With out buying those expensive kits

Opks aren't expensive... but you can also track your bbt and cm.

I would take a multivitamin plus folic acid.



Also, those apps are useless, they might track when your period is supposed to come, but ovulation can't be predicted like that as everyone is different.

That was the bc I was on. We ttc 3 times, two I was on trisprintec and we got pregnant the first month the other time we ttc I had been off bc for a few months before ttc and it took 4 months. My body seems to be more fertile the month I stop bc.

My SIL was TTC for 9 months, and then bought those...a month later pregnant. Turns out she was missing her fertile window by 5 days every month.
