My name is Mandy. Nice to meet you
I am a host on this particular board. It is so great but I must warn you, it's VERY addictive
I am 28 years old and DH is 31 years old. We've been TTC our 1st since June 2007. I actually stopped BCP at the end of April but didn't really count May as "trying". It's been a rocky path. I have to admit though, it got much easier once I realized that there's absolutely nothing wrong about it taking more than a few months, it is actually the norm.
I read these stats recently which might make your DH feel more at ease. I read (on a couple different medical sites) that:
Of all couples who are having unprotected sex:
25% of them will be pregnant within 4 months
75% of them will be pregnant within 8 months
90% of them will be pregnant within 1 year
So you see... getting a
on your first cycle is VERY rare. My doctor said "Go into it thinking it will take 18 months, then if it happens earlier, great"
Hope that helps
Again, I'm so glad you've found our board. The girls here are GREAT!! They make the madness of TTC so much easier.
You'll find friendship, support, knowledge and so much more!
Good Luck on your journey, I look forward to getting to know you better
Ok, girls.... introduce yourselves
