I don’t have medical advice, but I do know that after having been on the pill for about 10 years without a break, my friend stopped taking it and was pregnant within weeks. Her baby is happy and healthy!

I have long and heavy periods (that are few and far between) thanks to PCOS, so definitely keep an eye on your cycle lengths, etc – even while you’re ‘loosely’ TTC. It’ll help in case there are future issues with cycle regularity that may be having an impact on you falling pregnant.

But I’ve heard stories of people stopping BC & immediately falling pregnant – and the other extreme too. We’re all a little different! 🙂

My doctor told me to just stop taking pills as soon as we were going to start TTC. Out of all my friends that did that they all got pregnant within the first 3 months. Hoping that is going to be the same for me. No luck cycle #1 but we are on to #2!
