New here. Husband and I are ttc but only off of the pill for a month. I'm not expecting anything for a few months but saw that some became pregnant right away. Just wondering how long it took everyone to be truly fertile after birth control. Many articles seem to contradict each other. Thx!💞

I was on the pill, stopped taking that and conceived within 6 months. I had the implant in my arm, had that removed and fell pregnant straight away in the first month. Think it's just luck x

Thank you!

I've been trying for my 2nd baby this is my 2nd month. Had a miscarriage at 12 weeks last time x

Kagendo

Oh dear. I'm so sorry. That's one of my biggest fears.

We are trying for our first baby. I was on pill for 11 years : /

I am off 3 months now and my period is finally back to normal. I feel like this will be my month. They say it takes 1 to 3 months but up to 1 year.

Kagendo

What do you mean by "normal?" My periods were regular timing while on birth control. Do you mean bleeding more heavily? Still learning about all this.

Sandra

Yes bleeding more heavily... shorter cycle. Went from 28 days to 25. More cramps. And the first 2 months off the pill i had spotting for like 4 to 5 days before it actually started.... never in my life did i have that. But now they are normalizing and becoming what they used to be before i went on it. Only was on it for 1 year.
