no personal experience but I would recommend you come of birth control well in advance of ttc. You’re body has nevet had the opportunity to ovulate and it could take a while it even need help after so long

good luck x

I went through chemotherapy when I was 11 before I started my period, so mine didn’t start naturally. Was put on birth control almost immediately after treatment, and was on it for many years just so I could have my period. I got lazy about it in my mid-twenties and stopped taking it for a couple of months… and for the first time, miraculously–there it was!

Hormones are weird. Really, really weird. Give your body a little bit of adjustment time. Or, if you’re really worried now, try seeing your OBGYN or an endocrynologist. 

But honestly, I think it’ll start on its own just fine!

Could take up to 6 months off BC for your body to find it’s own rythm…..I wouldn’t worry. If it would put you at ease, go off the pill and switch to a barrier method and see what happens.

your body has probably become dependent on the extra hormones from the bc. It will take it awhile to start producing enough on its own. I agree with pp, don’t stress it as that can hinder instead of help and just come off it 6months to a year before TTC so you can get used to what you body will do naturally. Good luck!

Get a professional opinion I had similar issues but I was disgnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. It doesn’t necessarily mean I might never get pregnant but will most likely need help ovulating. 

I hope this helps. I suggest a reproductive endocrinologist.
