So I've been reading up on articles about birth control methods and apparently it does not take long to concieve once you stop using condoms. so NOT true!!! We have been using condoms for around 3 years now. We stopped 4 months ago to ttc but no luck yet. I for some reason had a very wrong perception that as soon as we stopped we'd be able to concieve. Nope no magic there. le sigh....
I just never knew it was going to be this hard to concieve!
What those articles mean is that the condoms won't do anything to harm your reproductive health, because they do not contain drugs that can harm fertility. If either of you has fertiltiy problems that you didn't know about before, the problem will still be there after you stop using condoms.
For a couple with average fertility, it is completely normal for it to take 6 - 12 months to conceive. It's a very common misconception that pregnancy happens quickly for everybody. You can increase your chances by tracking your cervical mucus and making sure to time intercourse at the right time for conceiving.
