I got pregnant four months after stopping birth control. It can take a perfectly healthy couple with zero issues a year to get pregnant.

bearbear1 :  No, I got pregnant as soon as I stopped them (so ovulated within a couple weeks).  It can take roughly 3 cycles for your body to regulate though.  But even then, that doesn’t mean you can’t get pregnant those cycles.  Most women have a ~25% chance each month and the vast majority will conceive within 6 months, up to a year for healthy couples.  BCP or no BCP.  It’s perfectly normal for it to take 3-4 months even if the woman was never on BCP.

First cycle off, never even got a real period. 12 weeks now and everything looks perfect so far, we saw baby waving around at our 12 week appt this week. 

My midwife said that most BC these days has a very short half-life and within 72 hours of ceasing the pill your body is back to acting like you were never even on it. I think the bottom line is that there is no one “normal” to expect because everybody is different!

What kind of BC were you using? Some take longer then others to get out of your system to allow your body to regulate its cycle.
