Well, I stopped taking my pills in April but we used condoms for a few months as we weren’t quite ready to TTC. We pulled the goalie in July, got a BFP Sept 5.

When I had my son I went off my pill in October and I was 8 weeks pregnant by that December.  I am hoping it goes that quickly again!

Been off the pill since January 2011 – got pregnant in May 2012. Lets just say that every single time in the past I always went to the bathroom after DTD and you know…the goods made their way out. But the time I got pregnant, hubby wanted me to lay in bed and cuddle. Boom – I’m 4 months pregnant right now… LOL.

I don’t want to butt in since I am not pregnant, yet! But I stopped BCP in May and am still working on it! I was on BCP on and off (more on then off) for about 11 years.

Good Luck!

I came off the pill at the very end of February of this year and got pregnant and on our second TTC cycle in July. My cycles went back to normal right away. This varies greatly from person to person though.

I’m with the OP on this one. I’ve heard all sorts of things about getting preggo after being on BCP. I found out some women are actually more fertile the month or so after stopping and others take longer to adjust and ovulate again (up to 6 months or a year). From what I hear from my doctor, it all depends on the woman and there’s really little way of knowing how your body will respond to no birth control until you ttc. 

That being said, I’m going off BCP when this pack runs out and plan on ttc next month. Fingers crossed! I’ll keep you ladies posted on how that goes. I honestly don’t expect to get pregnant within the first month based on hormone issues I’ve had in the past.

According to my OBGYN, you’re the most fertile in the 3 months right after you stop the pill. So apparently it’s a good time to start TTC!
