Unfortunately, there are those women who struggle to have balanced hormones after they have been taking birth control, especially if they have been taking it for several years. Below are some things that you can do to get your hormones back in balance so that you can become pregnant.

Talk to your Doctor

The best thing to do before you are ready to conceive is to have a talk with your doctor. Your doctor will be able to give you more information on the birth control that you are taking so that you will know when you should stop taking it. Some brands should be stopped a few months before you are ready to conceive so that it has time to leave your system.


Fertility Diet

The first thing you should start doing after you stop taking your birth control is to begin a fertility diet. There are certain foods that can improve the health of your reproductive system and make it easier for you to become pregnant. For example, adding foods that are high in vitamins, like folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, and zinc can help improve your hormones and balance them back out again.

Herbal Supplements

In addition to the right foods, there are also herbal supplements that can help balance out your hormones once more. These supplements can also help improve your likelihood of ovulating on a regular schedule, which is key to being able to conceive quickly. Some of the most popular supplements available are Vitex, Ovulex, Dong Quai, Maca and Prenatal Vitamins.

Fertility Massage

Many women also find benefit from a fertility massage. The benefit in this type of massage is that it helps improve your circulation. When your blood is flowing through your reproductive system the right way, it will be easier for your ovaries to produce healthy eggs. For some women, this also means that their fallopian tubes are clear from blockage and their egg can easily travel into their uterus.

These are all great options for women who are trying to balance their hormones after they have been taking birth control. Along with going through these items, always make sure you are tracking your ovulation cycle. This will tell you when you should be having intercourse and have the best chance of becoming pregnant. You can track your cycle with an ovulation predictor kit or a basal thermometer.
