#2.... four cycles
#3.... 2 years, charting, etc
#4.... 2 cycles
#5.... 1 cycle
so you can see it varied!
#2: About 6 weeks after my first true PPAF
I've had approximately 3 true fertile cycles in 12 years, and have been pregnant twice (I was either on BC pills, or extended breastfeeding with no cycle). DH is getting a vasectomy since he is DONE and we can't take any chances with our combined fertility.

#2 when DD was about 2yo we thought maybe we would want another and conceived within a month again no birth control
#3 unplanned with the use of fertility awareness and condoms conceived 3 years 9 months after #2
#4 also unplanned with use of fertility awareness and condoms conceived 3 years
baby #2- (DD, now 21 months) - I was 34, got pg 2nd month trying, three months after m/c
Baby #3 - (m/c) - I was 36. It was a surprise!
Baby #4 - (current pg) - I was 36. Got pg first month trying, 1.5 months after m/c.
#2: Surprise, so first try. Ended in m/c.
#3: First try. Ended in m/c.
#4: First try (used clomid again).
#5: First try (used clomid again; hoping for a sticky baby!)
preg#2 (m/c) - pregnant first cycle off OCPs, not really trying
dd1 - 8 cycles of charting and TTC, then 1 cycle of forgot the diaphragm once and there she was
ds2 - big surprise, while still nursing dd1
dd2 - conceived on 3rd cycle of trying
DS - CJ :, the love of my life
We used this to avoid sex during my fertile days for 5 yrs before ttc. Worked like a charm. When we did ttc, we had two pregnancies with one try each and one that took 2 cycles.
Mom to two boys, ages 8 and 11, and one blessing due May 8th.
