Oh i babysat for a lady & she didnt have an iud but she got the shot for 4 years & then her & her husband decided to stop using bc & try for a baby & it took them almost 15 months to conceive, so you might want to ask your dr about that. Also, weird question, but have you noticed any kind of weight gain, or anything abnormal like that with your body?We have been having unprotected sex since last November. We hadnt been "trying" to conceive, but we werent against the idea either. Then in the spring i gained 26 lbs from Feb 11 to May 26. They did blood work & found out i had a thyroid problem. After not even 2 months of my meds regulating everything i got pregnant & now im 12 weeks along:) surprise!!! LOL i dont know if this has anything to do with you, just trying to share my own problems:) GOOD LUCK

It felt like it took my husband and I forever to concieve! @ years then we had our first one and now im 12 weeks pregnant. My advice is (as hard as it is) try not to think about it so much, this stresses you out and builds you up for dissappointment. Second, since you have used the ovulation calculators you should know approx. the time of the month you will concieve-start trying about a week before the darkest line on the pregnancy calcularor because by the time it shows your ready, it may be too late. Lastly, rub as many pregnant bellys as you can! good luck.

I got pregnant in a matter of weeks with my son who is 17 months now and took 9-10 months to get pregnant with my 2nd son. I asked the doctor and he said dispite what people think about getting pregnant right away after having a baby it actually takes around a year average. He told me they won't even do tests or anything until you've tried for a year and every month you try you increase your chances of conceiving. He told me it's a slight myth about being very fertile after giving birth and those who conceive right away simply tried at the right minute. Hope that helped a little...

It might take a while for you get pregnant after having your IUD removed, but don’t worry! There is no evidence to prove that IUD’s do anything to harm the ability to get pregnant. It sometimes just takes a while for a woman’s body to get back on track. So, make sure you know your fertile days, and try to schedule sex during those times for your best chances of conceiving. Stay positive and be patient, and you will be pregnant before you know it! Anyway, if you are trying to get pregnant, there's a lot of things that you can do to improve your chances of conceiving. I've bought the 'Getting Pregnant Plan by Michelle Adams e-book' from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com, it has a lot of information about boost your chances of conceiving, pinpoint your ovulation accurately, improve your fertility and pregnancy.

Just started reading a book...Taking Charge of Your Fertility....natural suggestions to improving chances of conception. It does not try sell gimics and actually teaches how to chart temps. I still have not done temps yet but will stick to checking CM. I am hopeful and optimistic as it makes sense to how I conceived w/ our first child, I apparently tend to ovulate around CD8-10. NOT 14.

My fiancee and i started trying in June 2008 for our second kid, i was off birth control too and using ovulation predictors and was having difficulties, i started in January 09 going for amounts of time without a period so fortunes were being spent on tests, i gave up on test but had one here under my sink i never used. then my last period was April 2009, and i went without one for month, i had the dr do bloodwork once a month, he sent me for tests to look for blockages an ultrasound to check for any abnormalities, that was in september, in october i was getting pretty frustrated with going 6 months without a period or becoming pregnant, i was sent for one more round of bloodwork, then i was going to start a round of pills to make me start my period. at this point of trying for 16 months without sucess and everyone around me becoming pregnant again, i was starting to think there was something wrong with me seriously that i could never have another kid. i remember going to the dr on thursday afternoon, him sending me for bloodwork for friday and giving me the prescription, i went and got the prescription filled, and went and got the bloodwork done, monday i called up my doctors office and they told me the pregnancy hormone was finally detected, i broke down in tears on the phone. then i dug out my home test and did it and it showed positive, so i went to the dr a few days later and he had to schedule an ultrasound cuz where i went for 6 months without a period we didnt have a clue how far along i was, the ultrasound showed me i was 8 weeks, that was in november, so i got pregnant 3 days before my previous ultrasound, im now 18 weeks along, so dont give up. it happened to me and i got through it :) Good Luck!

My husband and I have been trying since our little guy was a month old. I breastfed, so I knew that it most likely wouldn't happen until I weaned him. I finally weaned him at 14 months...that's when the "real" trying begins since the breastfeeding months don't count and I only just got my cycle back a few days afterwards. It's only been 3 months "official" months of ttc, but, Lord, it's frustrating, especially seeing people with younger children who are still nursing get pregnant. I have done the ovulation predictors and we have been trying every other day to be sure to cover our bases. Every month is the same...I just feel so cranky and exhausted and think that I am pg, only to get my period a few days later. We have talked about it and decided that we aren't going to stress about it (as desperate as we both are)....so much easier said then done! Our schedules are crazy and we really only see each other for an hour each day as I work the night shift and he works days. When he gets home, the 3 of us hang out for an hour, then I'm off to bed, so I have to go wake him up during the week before I go to work when want to try. That really makes it hard to just forget about ttc! lol! Anyways, I know it will happen soon enough. Good luck to all the other ttc momma's! Hang in there!

Watched pot never boils! We had to "try" for our first for eight months. My second, I didn't fill my birth control one month, was not planning on getting pregnant, pregnant right away. Now pregnant with my third, we weren't sure if we wanted another one but we thought I would go off the pill and if it happens, it happens, If it doesn't then it wasn't meant to be....I got pregnant the first month. My advice is to stop trying and let it happen. Good Luck!

Try taking your temp and Ovulation Predictor kits (OPK).

We have been TTC for the past 7 months. My first one took 1 year- and only after we took a break from "trying". I have been taking temp was too hard for me, though. I stopped after 1 month. I am just doing the OPKs this past month. There are lots of cheap OPKs available online and are much cheaper than the local pharmacy (ie Walgreen's or CVS).

Looking back at our first time around, I think the whole "stop-trying' thing is true because you are probably more likely to pay attention to your body and do what your body feels like doing (I have noticed that I have more desire for sex and I have fertile cervical mucus (CM) when I am ovulating).

Baby dust to you!

It took me four months to conceive my first, a year to conceive my second, and a year to conceive my third. Every time is different. Relax and enjoy each other. That is when it will happen.
Best of luck!

My DH and I started trying 3months after we had out daughter,so December 2008...and only fell pregnant in September.We are now 16 weeks along with our 4th,and amazingly enough even though it took so long we are very fertile people.
It can just be this way.My best friends were falling pregnant within a few months of having their IUD removed,and yet I had never even had one in to begin with!So its a very tricky game thats played when TTC!
But if your still worried you can go talk to your doctor and there are medications you can take if your willing to go down that avenue that he can prescribe you that will help boost your chances of falling pregnant.
But sometime we just need to wait.Easy enough for me to say cause I am PG,but remember it took me 9 months to get there!Hope your well!

The only thing I could suggest is to stop trying. Me and the hubby tried for over a year and it was such an emotional roller coaster each time I got my period, or I went to a baby shower, saw a commercial, etc. You name it and it set me off. We went through every procedure possible, laparoscopy, sperm analysis, even had die injected into ovaries to check for blockages (sorry couldn't think of name of procedure at the moment), even took clomid. Everything came back normal, no reason ever found for infertility. Eventually I got so hurt and disappointed that I stopped tracking my ovulation with kits, temperature, etc (believe me I did it all) and it wasn't until I stopped thinking about it that it happened. In my case I think I stressed myself out over it and that's what kept it from happening. Good luck hun, it will happen when you least expect it.

We just found out that we're having another baby a few days ago! We had been trying for about the last 7 months or so. My Dr. said the best way is to start having sex at 7 days after the first day of your menstrual cycle, then every OTHER day after that (to keep sperm count up). I've also heard that when you start to have more discharge, it's good to have sex that day as well. We did not start at day 7.. actually we were both tired and didn't have sex at all until my "discharge" day. It just feels like a miracle to me, because it's never been easy for me to get pregnant! I will say this, we were getting to a point where we weren't so stressed about it- like people said above, we made sex fun and whatever we did, it worked! Good luck and just try to relax!

It took me almost exactly 1 year to get pregnant with my first child. The only advice I have is to watch your body. There are several changes that happy to your body when you are fertile, temperature changes, changes in discharge and changes in mood. Keep track of your body and don't stress yourself out!

First of all , let me say good luck, and I know what you're going throug has I very recently went through the same thing. The advice that my close friends that knew we were trying all gave me was, try to not concentrate on it. If you're worried about it, or why it's not happening, your body can work against you. I obsessed for months- bought ovulation tests and pregnancy tests in bulk on ebay, calculated everything practically to the exact moment we needed to have sex to conceive! Every month I would even figure out, if I got got pregnant this month, my due date would be ____, the morning sickness would probably hit at _______ time, etc. After months with nothing happening, in October, I made up my mind that I was gonna make it fun, and not worry about it. I did not take any tests, no calculating, didn't even figure out my potential due date. I just let things happen according to "the mood,"and on Halloween, I found out that I was finally pregnant! Believe me, it's not as easy as it sounds to "forget" about it, but it is alot less stressful.Sorry if this is too much info, but I was also told hat positions such as doggy-style , or woman on top are the best ways to get pregnant, as it allows the sperm to get as close as it needs to be to where it needs to go, and it doesn't have to work as hard. One more thing I heard is that taking prenatal vitamins when trying to conceive can actually help you to get pregnant faster! That's another thing that I did to help things along! I wish you the best of luck in all the world! I know how heartbreaking it can be to go for months with nothing to show for it, but keep your chin up! It'll happen!

So this time when we tried to get preggo, i stoped by birthcontrol in august and didn't get preggo until April. Then my sister was trying also, it took her almost 9 months, she went to the doctor who told her that she couldn't try anything until they had tried for a year. So she would call me for advise and because she was frustrated. So what worked for me and her, is to stop stressing it. Focus on something else. i can tell you that everyone that I have met who has tried to get preggo and failed stresses out so bad, that I think their body goes into survival mode and you cant do that and get preggo. Either when you give up, let it go, or have something else introduced into your life is when it happens. For me I started school again and stopped thinking about it all together, for my sister she started remolding her house and got preggo. I hope this helps :)

I had good luck with my first pregnancy. I charted for about four months and became pregnant. The second time around, nothing was happening. I started charting again and noticed some weird patterns. So I decided to splurge and buy a fertility monitor (okay, so I actually bought a used on eBay... still worked!) I used it for two months and found that even though my periods seemed normal, I wasn't ovulating. I immediately went to the doctor and they ran some tests. As I suspected, I wasn't ovulating. I would totally suggest getting the fertility monitor or going to see the doc. I was put on Clomid and get pregnant the first round... and am expecting a baby boy in less than three weeks! Good luck to you!

Don't have much suggestions... but we too have been trying for 8 months. Hoping this may be the month! Tired of getting negative results. Hang in there! We just gotta believe it will happen. May need to see your dr though after of few more months of trying.
