For some people it takes awhile for others it doesn't. When I stopped taking birth control (b/c). I didn't start ovulating again until my dr put me on Clomid. However, my sister-in-law got pregnant the first month after stopping her b/c. If you think you are not ovulating then I would call your dr and ask what they recommend.View Thread
I have heard some women say they got pregnant even when they threw in some oral. The saliva is not good for the sperm so if you are trying hard to conceive I would skip the oral during the "fertile time".View Thread
Did you finish your pack of pills or stop mid-cycle? What I have read suggests finishing the pack of b/c to lessen the chance of messing up your cycles.
Regardless of whether or not you finish the pack, when you go off b/c in can mess up your cycles. (Make you not ovulate, or just make it irregular) If you are not ovulating then you most likely won't have a period. I would recommend calling your dr and filling them in, they should be able to get you back on track or at least do a blood pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. I hope you get some answers! Keep me posted!View Thread
It all depends on whether or not you are ovulating. Some women when they stop B/C they start ovulating the first month, others have to have medical intervention. I went off b/c 1 year ago and I had to take Clomid to restart ovulation. If you are ovulating then yes you can get pregnant. (Assuming there are no other issues) Hope that helps!View Thread
