Hang on in there!! We had a miracle conception after 2 years. I was in a horrible place after trying so long, thinking it would never happen. But in all honesty looking back I'm glad to have had that time with just me and my hubby...def made us stronger when our time did come. Good luck.

Took us 8 months. Tmi but just do it every other day. Our issue was I assumed I was fertile mid cycle but actually think I am right at end of period weird but true so went for it for two months - preg.

Took my sister 2 years. No reason. Her second took 1 month!

A bit of a different situation but I was ttc for 18 months with 3 miscarriages along the way but eventually got my sticky bean who is 8 months now. I had Pcos which causes difficulties with implantation even if you ovulate fine. What's your cycle like and have you been tested for Pcos? I self medicated with agnus castus prior to conceiving my sticky one but metformin and a low GI diet may have done the trick if I'd known about them.

Good luck, hang on in there!

Took 8 months to conceive dd2 - cycle was all over the place.

7 months is not long. I know it feels like a lifetime but be patient as 12 months is an acceptable timeframe. Try to relax a bit as stress will affect your chances. How often do you have sex. 3 times a week is more than enough. More than that can mean the a sperm is not mature enough.

Thankyou so much for all your replies I really really appreciate it. We have sex everyday during fertile period and a few times a week thereafter. I will try every other day this month... Xxx

Took over 9 months for ds1. Try not to feel discouraged although I know it is tough

Abella Mon 01-Feb-16 15:26:08

Thankyou did you use any special 'pattern' for how often when you had sex?

icklekid Mon 01-Feb-16 15:40:15

We tried for other day (didn't always succeed!) I stopped tracking fertile days after 6 months and was about to start again!

Freezingwinter Mon 01-Feb-16 17:36:00

Of course! Took us 11 months. Honestly up to a year is normal. Feels like everyone gets pregnant just by looking at each other but up to 12 months and often a little longer is normal. Enjoy yourself!

Took us 1 year and 1 week for the first after coming off the pill. I had a pretty irregular cycle (think 36 days or more or less hmm )but we were dtd often enough!
Second took precisely 9 days from first try hmm obviously didn't plan on THAT so its not indicative of future babies smile

I spent 6 months charting, opks, sex every other day all month. Month 7, we decided to forget about it for a month, but dtd once when I had ewcm and hey presto. Taking the pressure off worked which explains why I'm opking like a madwoman ttc#2

Thankyou so much all your replies have steadily got me out of a pit of doom! First day of period today. Would anyone recommend? ( apart from using tools charting, ovulation etc) how often to have sex over the one month period? Thanks much appreciated

We did it every other night. Regardless of TTC just fell into that kind of pattern. DH on top to ahem finish and then I promptly put hands under hips and lifted legs into the air against the wall behind bed and stayed there for about 30 mins!! Only did that when it was ovulation time obviously! wink

That was recommended to me by a friend who'd been successful in getting pregnant.

Hope you get your BFP soon.

It took us 2 1/2 years for DS1 and it is heartbreaking. DS2 however, was first attempt (so nearer 2 1/2 minutesgrin)

MrsSHolmes Tue 02-Feb-16 22:58:46

9 month and still no luck. .

longestlurkerever Wed 03-Feb-16 09:49:10

Oh one thing I tried was mooncup in after sex!

Dolallytats Wed 03-Feb-16 11:17:02

I don't know if this will give you hope or you will feel hopeless-it is intended to be positive.

I conceived my first DC quickly but was unable to get pregnant again. It took 15 years to come to terms with that.....then I found out I was expecting DC2!! A miracle baby!!

5 years after that....DC3!!!!

Now, obviously 15 years is a long wait and I hope yours is much shorter, but as far as I know a year is not unusual so you're still in early days

Good luck!

AWhistlingWoman Wed 03-Feb-16 11:25:57

Me! DTDs - first cycle
DS - fifteen months
DD3 - first cycle

I have no idea why DS took longer than his sisters! Had started investigations and tests after a year. Got pregnant with DS after I'd been told we might need IVF to conceive again.

Then DD3 came along very quickly after we had decided to have her! Seems to be no rhyme or reason. Hope it happens for you soon flowers

20 months DC 1. DC 2 now baking after 3 cycles. Hang in there X

CoffeeCoffeeAndLotsOfIt Wed 03-Feb-16 16:50:29

I conceived ds after 1 month, miscarried a baby that took 2 months to conceive. Recently found out I'm pregnant again, this time round it took 9 or 10 cycles. Best of luck OP

TheVeryThing Wed 03-Feb-16 17:07:30

DS2 took 10 cycles to come along.
I think when you're doing everything you should be doing with no luck it's hard to believe that the next cycle will be any different.
At least that's how I felt, but it just was a matter of catching that lucky egg.

Best of luck

TheImprobableGirl Wed 03-Feb-16 22:05:24

No real tips but I definitely dtd more when I had ewcm, and I know everyone says it and you never can but I stopped being worried about it at about 11 months, just thought fair enough- enjoy life and sex again for now and worry in 5 years or so (obviously I was young enough to have this luxury) and sure enough it happened....

I also put my legs in the air after dtd , gravity never hurt!!
