    I quit in early August and we weren’t actually trying but we weren’t trying to prevent getting pregnant.  I ended up getting pregnant in the middle of October so about two and a half months.  I went through three periods if that helps.

    My answer is “other”.  I got pregnant 2 weeks after quitting the pill.

    I went off the pill at the beginning of March and found out I was pregnant at the end of June. So nearly four months, I think it was three cycles total? I was only on the pill for a year as well, so I think that played a part in it. 

    If you remain regular after getting off the pill it’s easier to get pregnant too. I was able to figure out a 1-3 day timeframe of when I’d be ovulating (I could never tell). But unless you use ovulation tests, it’s almost impossible to determine that if you are irregular.

    About 13 months after I stopped taking BC.

    7 months and I was actually about to start hardcore fertility treatments. I never got a natural period about stopping and was not ovulating. They gave me provera 5 months after so I could finish the battery of fertility testing and by some miracle 38 days later I grew an egg on my own. My point is that it is such an individual thing you can try to plan, but the best laid plans sometimes don’t work. We thought I would be giving birth this month, we didn’t plan for problems.

    I started taking the Pill in August 2003, stopped taking it Feb 2011 and am still trying to get pregnant (so ten months off BC, actively TTC for eight cycles)
