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.

    I just started birth control and metformin last month to regulate myself and help with my pcos since me and my fiance are trying to have a child. We really want to start trying. I am on my second pack of birth control and I’m wondering if I take myself off birth control but continue the metformin if my chances of getting pregnant are going to be higher during the first month of trying to conceive.

    Hi there, I went off the pill about a year ago & my period was regular every month til about 3 months ago, I havent got it & I have done tests but not pregnant. This has happened to me many years ago which prolonged me falling pregnant, after 2 years I eventually fell pregnant because my Estrogen was low. Can I still fall pregnant even tho I haven’t got period in 3 months?
