Yes it is possible, some women conceive within the first few weeks, it can take others some months. Just over half of women fall pregnant within 6 months of trying, and it takes the remainder longer...so there's nothing set in stone as to whether or not you will have difficulties - it could be quicker than you think! Whilst your body is adjusting to its natural rhythms again it may be that your hormones are a little less predictable, but so is your ovulation and it's not worth taking the risk of pregnancy if you're not ready yet. For more specific questions, ask the online gynaecologist on the Health 24 expert forum.

Ok, I can see that this is killing you, why dont you just go and buy a pregnancy test and get it over with. I.m sure there is no need to worry.
