I know I don't post on here much, but I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. Here is my history:
It took 3 months to get pregnant with my first. I started trying for my second when my first was only 3 months old. I did a few cycles of clomid, my dh had an SA (which was normal), I ended up on BC because of a cyst from the clomid, finally I had an HSG and ended up pregnant with my second 3 months after my HSG. Total time trying was 1 1/2 years.
Now that I have had my second, I am not sure if I should go on 3 months of BC?? When should I start trying?? What can I do to hopefully get pregnant sooner??
How old is baby #2? Are you brave enough to start trying? Sounds like it! Well if it were me and I hoped to get pregnant again soon, I'd just stick with condoms until you are ready again. And I would think your cycles would come back sooner if you are not breastfeeding. However, plenty of women who breastfeed find themselves pregnant again so you never know. And make sure you are BDing 4 days before, 2 days before, and on the day you ovulate (if you know when that is). Otherwise stick to 2-3 times a week and the law of averages should hopefully work for you. Just my take. If you're ready, go for it whenever!
