On BCP ~10 years. Charted BBT, and paid a bit of attention to CM, but not a lot. Actively avoided key time to BD during first cycle, got pregnant second cycle.  Conceived at 31. Really didn’t expect it to happen that quickly!

I hope it happens quickly for you! I went off BCP in November. December we were NTNP, then started to actively TTC in January. We are currently in the FW of my 3rd cycle. Hoping this is our month!

I was on BC for about 5 years, went off in January to prepare for trying starting April (advice from my gyno) and got pregnant in July.

I was on for 16 years and I got pregnant the first cycle off.  We were not TTC, just weren’t careful one night.  Your cycle should return to whatever it should/would have been.  The hormones are out of your system very quickly but it can take some peoples bodies longer to regulate coming off.  If you have sex 2 or 3 times a week you’re pretty much guaranteed to have some sperm around waiting for the egg, so I wouldn’t worry too much.

poetgal:  we avoided the FW for the first few months.  This past month we hot sloppy.  We hit 1 day (O-3) and I’m pregnant. I’d been off and TTA for 5 months or so.  We ended up pregnant the first time we hit the FW. So try not to stress until there’s a reason to stress.  Also, I’m no spring chicken, I’m nearly 33.

Was on BCP for 10 years, went off Christmas Eve, still on my first cycle (52ish days?), no period in sight… never thought I’d want to see a period to know I’m back to “normal” and can finally really start trying! I do chart my temps though, just because it’s a good habit to start.

It’s been 14 months now and nothing so far. That said, I’ve had problems ever since I got my hormonal implant removed, and they’re getting worse over time. I’m about to make another appointment to go back for another round of tests later this week… so I’m probably not the best person to compare yourself to!

sostobe:  Sorry to be a creepy stalker, but I opened this thread since I’m going off BC next month and just wanted to say congrats, fellow Feb-Bee! You’ve got LOTS on your plate now, but a year-long maternity leave to look forward to! 😉
