I know a lot of people who go off BC and immediately conceive. My OBGYN says a ton of her patients get preggie this way. Something about the body compensating for the lack of hormones and now overproducing them?

I know someone who got pregnant her first month off. If that’s not your goal though, and you want to be regular first (which is nice, because you won’t be left guessing if your period didn’t come because you are pregnant, or because it’s just a result of not being regular yet from the pill), I don’t have advice for that, but I can tell you that I’ve been off since October and I’m still far from regular (and will probably be visiting the doctor soon if this month’s cycle doesn’t come soon).

Generally it takes anywhere from 3-6 months for your cycle to regulate after going off synthetic birth conrol….there are obviously variants (how long you were on the pill etc.)

I highly recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It’s super easy to read and will teach you just about everything you need to know about your cycle, girly bits and TTC or prevent pregnancy naturally.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me. I am a health coach, doula in-training and holistic fertility counselor.


Good luck!!

I plan on going off of the pill 3 months before TTC. I know a lot of women end up conceiving immediately after coming off of the pill, but it can also cause some major complications. Last year my Maid/Matron of Honor went through a lot of heartache with numerous miscarriages and other serious complications, and it was attributed directly towards her trying too soon after coming off of her pill. It can also depend on how long you have been on the pill, and the pill itself, so I would strongly suggest speaking to your doctor about it.

Good luck!
