    We were planning on starting TTC in August (our wedding is next week), but I had MAJOR anxiety about having issues TTC, so after we discussed it, we decided I would go off the pill in July! So after my last period at the end of June I stopped taking them. I had one full cycle before my BFP! So my anxiety was REALLY for nothing. The sad thing is, you really NEVER Know! SOme people’s body’s take 6 months+ to adjust after getting off the pill, and some don’t.

    Hope that helps!

    I honestly thought my body would take a long time to adjust to getting off the pill, so when my prescription ran out just before my wedding, I didn’t bother getting it refilled.  Imagine our surprise when we found out we were pregnant a couple of weeks after the the wedding (a lovely, wonderful surprise, but a suprise, nonetheless!).

    You can always go off the pill sooner and use another birth control method before you TTC.  This is nice for two reasons.  First, it can take a while to start ovulating again — it took me about five months.  Second, it can help you feel more confident that things are working, and make you feel more comfortable about waiting.  Only try to get pregnant now if you want to be pregnant now.
