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.

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'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.

First time I TTC it took 6 months, second time 1 month.
