I would say that it's not about how old you are, but about how willing you are to give up your time and selflessly care for another human being. I had a child at 19. And in my opinion, I was too young to be a parent. You have plenty of time, so don't stress over it.

It's not too young, I got pregnant (accidentally) at 19. But I wish I had waited just 2 or 3 more years. Just to have more time to build a married relationship with my husband. And to get some work experience and finish school faster. Once you have kids your world is never the same. You have lots of time to have kids in the future. But as long as you know what you're getting into and have a way to support yourself the choice is yours.

I think more than age is stability...if you have a place to live and a way to support the baby, great! It can take up to a year for birth control to completely get out of your system. After 6 months if your still having trouble monitor your ovulation. But I'm with angel...relax!

I have found that the more you worry about getting pregnant the longer it takes.
19 is not to young. I was 16 with my first, 18 with my second and 26 with my third and it took longer with the third. I think because I was so stressed by it not happening.
Relax and good luck. With two of mine it didnt happen until I had given up and stopped trying lol

My name is Blythe, I'm 19 and in the Navy. My husband and I are starting to think of getting pregnate. I've been off birth control for a couple months now and we are both kind of surprised I'm not pregnate by now. How young is too young to get pregnate?? We really really want a baby and have been talking about it for awhile now. Any feed backs?!?!
