I am curious about this as well, thanks for asking!  I also would be interested in knowing what form of BC (if any) were you on prior to conceiving.  Thanks!

For me it was really strange. We weren’t TTC, if anything we were trying to make sure we didn’t! I had never been on any type of BC before and he used the pull out method. It’s not the best method sure but it worked. Then the one time we used a spermicide I got pregnant! It was a few weeks before my 20th birthday so I didn’t know until after I was 20.

Child # 1 – Was on pill, stopped pill three months before we wanted to start trying and used condoms – conceived first month of no birth control.  Was 29 at the time.

Child # 2 – Exactly the same scenario as with child # 1, only 3 years later.

Child # 3 – Was on pill (had been on for years at that point), missed most of first week, assumed chances of conceiving would be low due to age (38) and length of time on pill – Wrong.

Baby #1 (not yet born): started TTC at 28 after being on BCP (ortho-cyclen and more recently Yasmin) for 13 years.  We conceived our 10th month.

We were TTC for 2 months before I got pregnant. I miscarried and we’re starting to TTC again this month. Hopefully it will be just as quick!

I went off the pill after our wedding in April and we conceived on the 1st try in early June. (I miscarried in July)

I couldn’t believe it happened so quickly. I hope it happens quickly when we are able to try again. I think the average is about 6 months or so?

I went off the pill in April and the first time we “tried” (had sex during  my ovulation period) was in July.  Two weeks later I learned I was pregnant!  Crazy that it happened that fast!  Good luck!
