Rumors about infertility

First of all, there is no reason to worry about getting pregnant after being on the pill. There is no evidence or proof out there to show that women who take birth control pills are unable to get pregnant after going off of the pill. So, don’t be stressed out about that. In fact, over 90 percent of women who take the pill become pregnant within a year of going off of it. For me personally, it took a year and a half of being off of the pill before I became pregnant with my oldest daughter. Again, totally normal.

How long does it take to get pregnant?

What affects how fast you get pregnant after going off of the pill? Well, obviously, you have to give your body time to return to its normal cycles and for the pill to get completely out of your system. For some women, this just takes longer. That is all there is to it. Our bodies are all different, and some of them bounce right back and start back in their old cycles right away, while other bodies take more time to adjust. The average time it takes for a woman’s fertility to return to normal is around three months. Some women, though, bounce right back and can get pregnant within a few weeks of going off of the pill. Others may take up to a year or more. These numbers are all normal, and don’t mean that anything is wrong with you!

Wait for normal cycles to resume

It is a good idea to allow your body to go through one or two menstrual cycles before trying to get pregnant, just so you can get back to “normal”. Eating right, exercising, taking a prenatal vitamin, and avoiding smoking and alcohol can all boost your chances of getting pregnant faster, since these things help to get your body ready for pregnancy. That being said, if you have been off of the pill for 2-3 months and have not resumed your normal menstrual periods, it might be time to talk with your doctor just to make sure that everything is okay.

    Hi, I’m trying 2 figure out why I can’t get pregnant? I started depo in dec. 07 an had my last shot in march of 09. These shots last 3 months each shot. In may of 09 I started the patch. To regulate my cycle and got of the patch in jan of 2011. I bleed for about 2.5 weeks when I got off the patch but it only took a couple months for my period to become regular again. I have been off birth control for a year and 8months an still have not concieved. I take a prenatal vitamin everyday. And my cycles are very regular every 28 days on the dot. Please help :-(

    The time period for the body to return to its ‘normal’ state after birth control is different for every woman. Some conceive in a few weeks while others take more than a year. This is normal. Knowing that your cycles are now regular is a good sign that your body is better adjusted post birth control. Just continue taking prenatal vitamins. In addition, take folic acid, eat a balanced diet, and keep fit, to ascertain a healthy pregnancy in the future. You can also try taking ConceiveEasy which has been clinically proven effective in overcoming common obstacles in conception, which will further increase your chances of conceiving. Good luck!

    Hi thre, is it true that a woman can increase fertility by having sex with partner the previouse night and has a nother orgasm the next morning without intercourse? Will it work?

    No. But studies show that the contractions of a female orgasm has the potential to enhance the chances of fertilization by projecting the semen higher inside her.

    I went off the pill 4 months ago and my first cycle off was exactly 30 days….then 33 days the next, then 40 days, and now I am on day 41 and still counting. My husband and I are ready to start TTC, but my cycles are making me nervous and stressed. I am worried that my ovulation is out of whack or I’m not ovulating at all. Any suggestions?

    Keep on tracking your ovulation period, since you ordered the TTC, it may take time to see the result because it will still depend on your own body chemistry. What we can advice always seek medical attention from an expert like an Ob-gyne to have you check.

    Hi, I stopped taking microgynon 30 in Feb (just didn’t start a fresh pack after the week off) I had a bleed in march and again in April, then nothing, I’ve taken two pregnancy tests and a blood test from the gp and all were negative. Would you say this was unusual/ something to worry about?

    Hi, I have been off the pill for just over a year now after being on it for 5 years and have found it hard to get pregnant. About 3 months ago I was treated for chlamydia and I am worried that maybe that’s the cause as I don’t know how long I had it for. I have read its hard to concieve after chlamydia as it can scar the lining. I am not sure if I should just talk to my doctor or just give Just give it some more time. I hope you can reply to me, thank you.

    Yes, it is highly recommended that you work closely with
    your doctor to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy as a having a history of Chlamydia
    poses risks to your baby. But do not worry as a lot of women who had Chlamydia
    have had successful pregnancies.

    It does take time for a woman to conceive after she has been on birth control whether Depo, Mirena or the pill. Your body is just adjusting back to its normal ovulating state. Although it is best to consult a specialist and have tests done to rule out any fertility problems just in case.
