Question: how long could it take to get pregnant with no.2


 aoifejp - Thu Sep 10, 2009 3:27 pm

I had a baby 9 mths ago. For the past 4 mths we have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive, i even used an ovulation predictor kit last mth and had sex each day both running up to and after ovulation. For the last 4 mths every second menstrual cycle has been 26 days long, the rest of the time i am 28 days. I had quite a hard birth with my first baby,( who was conceived in our first mth of trying), could this effect mychances of conceiving again. Maybe i am just over anxious. We seem to be doing everything right but still cant conceive, could there be something wrong

User avatar Hello,
The birth experience would not affect your chances of conception now. But, your body sometimes knows what is needed and becoming pregnant prior to a year postpartum is not ideal for your health so perhaps patience is what is needed while your body recovers fully from childbirth and ovulation regulates itself.

Best wishes.
