As far as I have read, you can start whenever you want, but it can take a few weeks or months for your body to start to regulate your cycles again and for you to start ovulating again.

My doctor said to wait 3 months. Not sure what for, but I’ve read the same thing from other ladies on these boards a few times.

I would just call your doc and ask! I have never heard about having to wait but it doesn’t hurt to ask!

i’ve been told to not pull the goalie until you’re ready because she has so many patients who get knocked up in the first month.

My doctor suggested we wait two cycles.  She said that not only would it be easier to track my cycle once I was off for a few months, but that there was a higher possibility for miscarriage while your body was still adjusting.  That said, quite a few of my friends have gotten pregnant safely the first month off.

When I went to the obgyn for my last annual and pre-baby making apt, she said there was no need to wait. It could take a while for my cycle to regulate and even out, but there was no medical reason to wait after stopping the pill. I went off a few days after a new pack and began trying right away. Second month was the charm!

My Mom went off the pill, and 30 days later she was preggo with me. 

I turned out healthy and fine!

we waited 7 mos, but part of that was just that we wanted to increase the chance that we would get pregnant quickly when we started (used barrier method for 7 mos), and I was still in grad school…I’ve heard conflicting views, but I would at least wait until your visit.  Mine checked me for a couple immunities to see if I needed a vaccine before TTC, but I know not every doc feels this is necessary.  Like everything in pregnancy, you will get a range of opinions (liberal to paranoid) and you have to do what is right for your family…I usually tend toward the paranoid, bc I figure I’d rather avoid any guilt or other sadness if something went wrong that I could’ve avoided.

My OB said there was no need to wait.  I think you will find some who advocate waiting but I don’t think there is any evidence that there are increased risks from trying right away…..but seeing your OB is a good idea before you start TTC!
