I started TTC when I was 36 and 2 months. Got my BFP 10 months later. I missed a couple of cycles trying due to my OH being away with work - so in all I think it took 8 months. I think the average is a year. I had started tests etc and was starting to worry. I had acupuncture as I am a trained acupuncturist and really felt this helped to regulate my cycle.

As for symptoms I genuinely couldn't tell the difference between pmt and pregnancy.

Would defo recommend charting a few months and taking opks. Make sure you really know your cycle so that timing every month is spot on.

Good luck ladies :-) and don't forget to send your OH for sperm tests. It's not always us!

Tks Jazzbird! Congrats to you So exciting!! Tks for the tips, think I am going to start using opk next month if no bfp on the 28th. Wishing you a happy & healthy rest of your pregnancy!

I was 36 when we started trying and got lucky on the third cycle (after 3 initial cycles off birth control). No symptoms I could identify (I'm a bit of a hypochondriac to start with) until 6 weeks (then the nausea and breast tenderness started). I did get a yeast infection the day after my BFP on day 14 post-ovulation.

We used proseed and DTD every other day starting a week after AF until ovulation. But my cycles were very regular (aside from one with a short lutenizing phase).

I'm 36, and started ttc at 33. I got pregnant after 7 cycles. Unfortunately, I lost that baby at 8 weeks. It took 21 more cycles to conceive this baby.

I conceived on my first cycle of trying in my 20's, twice, so age did make things tougher for me.

Best wishes for all and don't give up!!
