Hey all, just wondering how many cycles it took people to get pregnant with their first?

I'm only cycle #2 at the moment so no urgency on my part, just wondering smile

Mine was accidently the one time condoms weren't used and the 'pull out' strategy was used. Sitting here at 33weeks pregnant from the one time contraception wasn't used.

It took us over 4 years, I don't know exactly how many cycles as my periods were all over the place! We have now got our beautiful little 11 month old boy and he was most definitely worth the wait! Good luck smile

1 with each DC but that was just sheer luck, I only have one fallopian tube. I was 34 with DC1, 35 with DC2.

5 years and a round of IVF, I had regular periods and no diagnosable issues but sometimes that's just the way it goes. Good luck.
