So what do you guys consider TTC. I have a friend who told me her and her husband were TTC for 2 years before she had FS treatments. She was telling me the other day about some strange discharge she was having and I told her it sounded like she was ovulating. Sure enough 2 weeks later she said she got AF. I am wondering how could have possibly been TTC for 2 years if you dont know when you are ovulating?
For the first few months of us trying I wasn't really tracking my cycle, I had done in the past though. We were just having lots of sex with the intention of becoming pregnant. However, when I found BnB I started tracking and now know more that I want to about my inner workings
I would say TTC is something you are actively doing eg. tracking your cycles and your fertile time, whether its through temps and charting or opks. If you're just having sex and hoping it happens I would call that NTNP.
OH and I have been 'actively' ttc since March this year, which means we have been targetting for around my fertile time and have used a CBFM to track peak days for the past four months. All through 2009 and the first couple of months of this year we were NTNP, in that we never used any form of BC but didn't deliberately aim for my fertile time (in actual fact, probably missed it most months really). But it was just that we would have been fine if I had fallen pregnant. We then decided we did want to try properly earlier this year.
I am thinking the same thing; that you need to time around your fertile times in order to be officially TTC! She did have a baby with help of a FS & hormone shots. I just keep thinking since she has been a little more open with me that they werent even technically TTC. Not to say that they wouldnt have needed help because in 2 years you think a few months would have been timed correctly!
I just read some of the questions on here from girls who say the same, TTC for x amount of a "really long time" and I wonder how much attention they are really paying to TTC. I dont understand why they dont teach us better in high/grade school health class! Maybe it would stop some accidental pregnancies too! I think it is a big reason why alot of docs wont help until after 1 year. Too many loose definitions of TTC.
