    Hiya ladies

    I have just popped over from TTC as just wanted views. Okay so on 11th dec I took my last pill after almost 9 years on it. I had withdrawal bleed on 15th dec for approx 4 days. On 29th dec opk was -ve on 31st dec I got a v.strong +ve opk.

    On 11th jan I got a v.faint BFP but 2 days later AF arrived. :growlmad: I finished around 19th jan and DTD 19th, 22nd & 24th jan so far. We plan on DTD every other day until AF is due, I ov'd on CD17 last month and as yet I havent had a +ve opk but will check over the next few days as according to ticker am entering fertile period.

    I was just wondering how many if any of you have got pregnant by DTD every other day for the whole month? I just wanna catch that egg!! :happydance:

    Thank you :thumbup:

    That's what DH and I did. Every other day for the month and I got pregnant the first month. I also used preeseed and instead cups too! :)

    Good luck!

    We just BD'd whenever we wanted.
    We may just be lucky as we fell pregnant after only BDing twice last month!!
    Im sure its just luck as to when you do it and when you ovulate!
    Also i was on the pill for about 8-9 years too (BFP 2nd month TTC) xxx

    Congrats! Last month we DTD 3 out of 4 days leading up to +ve opk, the day of +ve opk & day after. Then missed a day and DTD the day after that. We never managed to catch though :nope:

    with my first we dtd every day and got caught the first month... this time had been trying just on the run up to ovulation and for a couple of days after.. and we were trying for 6 months so in december i told my dh we were going to dtd every night again for a month (which he obviously didnt complain too much!:haha:) and got caught.
    I think I was being to scientifical working out dates, and resorting to every night worked again for us!! ( although it wasnt a sticky one so i'm coming over to join you on ttc again)

    i was actually on the pill when i got pregnant... so we were very lucky in that sense. but we were only BDing about once a week, due to schedules we were apart during the weeks and only saw each other one weekend day. so... you just gotta hit the right day :)

    Check out the Sperm Meets Egg Plan thread, thats what we did.
    start taking your pre-conception vitamins every day. My doc advised a 6month wait without contraceptive pill/implant to prevent likelihood of chemical miscarriage?
    we caught when we changed to 36 hours instead of 48 - depends how long the spermies live for - everyone is different! :)

    That's not what we did -- we temp charted after coming off the pill. Don't worry that it didn't happen for you the very first month though, it usually takes a while after you come off the pill to get back to normal.

    i forgot to add that my sister is also pregnant (2 days ahead of us)... it took her body 2 mos after stopping her birth control to regulate itself. they got pregnant the 2nd mo after that -- so 3 or 4 cycles. everybody is different.

    in the meantime, i truly believe that being healthy and happy really help your chances. enjoy life, keep a positive attitude, eat right and exercise. these things can only boost your odds, so give it a go if you can/don't already. you can also get started on prenatal vitamins if you haven't done so already. my girlfriend swears they make you more fertile, tho i dont know if that is really true -- still can't hurt to have that folic acid intake anyway.

    We did! I had very messed up cycles so i didnt actually know when i was ovulating. We DTD from day 10 until AF was due to show. The first month didnt work but the 2nd month it did. I stuck a pillow under my bum and held my legs up for 20 mins.

    Hope this helps and dont give up :)

    Thanks for all the replies! I had already spoke to my doctor and he advised to come off the pill when I am ready (which I did) and to try not to get pregnant for the first month which I havent anyway :( (I think the lady who mentioned wait 6 mnths, maybe this is to the individual if underlying issues etc). We are on our 2nd cylce TTC (but the first proper one), my body seems to have got itself sorted quite quickly in that I ov'd in the first month and AF pretty much came on time the first time round which I am thankful for! I started taking Folic Acid over a month ago so hopefully that is working its way into my system! FX'd!!!

    Each time I fell pregnant I caught the egg only by bd once, each time I thought I missed my fertile period but ended being pregnant anyway! Every month I bd every fertile day or every other day I never caught on. I was on the pill for 7 years before before trying for no1 and it took my body a couple of months to regulate, I caught on in the 3rd cycle for each pregnancy!

    Congrats! Reading this makes me worried that maybe if we DTD every other day might not be a good thing but then if we DTD mainly around ov we still may not catch the egg!! I am so frustrated :cry: & am not sure what to do. I am in my fertile period at the moment and so far since a week ago we have DTD 3 times, today will be our 4th.

    I did!!! It was tough at times but worth it in the end! We caught it on our first month trying. I found opks temping etc to be too much faffing about so just used the good old fashioned method lol!

    Good luck,

    Congrats!! Were you on BC or had you stopped a while before? I am using the opk's in my fertile period just to see what happens.

    One thing I am worried about is if I get a +ve opk on a day we wont be DTD do we DTD that day and the next day as usual? I am worried incase we have already DTD the day before then get +ve opk and so DTD that day and the next and the spermies havent had time to build up :shrug:

    Also after I have ov'd should we still DTD every other day until AF just incase? :dohh:

    I came off the pill in September had a normal period straight away and was back to regular periods (started taking folic acid then). Waited for an all clear from smear test in November, started officially trying end of Nov around ovulation. DTD just three times (Fri, Sun, Tues) and got a BFP two weeks later!! x
