    It took me one month, but that is because I didn't leave anything to chance. I checked my temp every day and used the internet cheap ovulation tests as well. As it turned out I O'd on a different day than I thought. I had been off the pill for 6 months too.
    I was 34 when we conceived.

    Good luck

    I've conceived 3 times since my 33rd birthday, but the first time I had come off the pill after years on it and the 2nd and 3rd times I was still breastfeeding.
    It took me 3 months, then 4 months, then 5 months. All three times I followed the SMEP.

    Got pregnant 2nd month off the Pill a month after my 33rd birthday. My cycles are somewhat unpredictable in length/timing of ovulation, so I monitored my cycle using a BBT, and OPKs (cheap internet ovulation predictor sticks).

    I was pregnant as soon as we stopped using contraception without noting ovulation dates, temps etc. Had my bub three days shy of my 35th birthday.

    I was the same with both of my pregnancies. With DD I was 33 and got pregnant in the first month after stopping contraception. With DS, I was 37 and was pregnant within 2 months. I never got to the stage of charting etc.

    I'm pretty close to 33 and just conceived at the end of last year. I used the Pink Pad iPhone app to monitor my periods for a few months leading up then bam it worked first time when we followed the app's estimated time of ovulation for that month.

    Steve Jobs would be proud...

    At 42 - within the first month after our marriage, on our honeymoon. No charting etc. I had never used chemical birth control. We are trying again this year; if it doesn't happen we won't continue to try, as the risk escallation is a form of gambling I'm not comfortable with. Hubby will more than likely take one for the team and have the snip. That being said, when I was in highschool I had quite a few friends whose mothers continued to have babies at a later age, the oldest at 47 - remember change-of-life babies?

    I am 33.5 years young and I was on Nuva Ring for contraception and before that the pill for years and years. I've been off the ring for about 3 months and fell in my 2nd month of trying.
    I did buy an ovulation kit though for the second month (cheap online pee stick type, not the expensive digital ones) and it turns out I ovulate very very late. If I hadn't done this I would have gotten it all wrong.
    I highly recommend these tests for anyone TTC.
