I'm just wondering really. I have been with dp for 9 years. I have finally got my career sorted and we are settled and happy. We have lived together for 5 years. When we moved in together I stopped taking the pill, not because I wanted to get pregnant at the time but because I thought it was having horrible side effects. I was supposed to sort out alternative BC but I never got round to it. Anyway, we have decided that we will soon start ttc which we are very excited about, but I have a niggle in the back of my mind...we have never had any 'scares' or anything in the last 5 years of no BC. I know that nobody is psychic and that realistically the sensible thing to do is get ttc and if it doesn't happen then to look into it, I'm just scared really. I don't know what I want anyone to suggest, I just haven't actually voiced these worries before. Has anyone had a similar experience and then managed to conceive easily? Or is it likely that we will struggle?
