    Default Conceiving after being off bcp for 2 cycles

    How long after being off the pill is usual to conceive? I only went on the pill for a couple of months and went off in Aug.

    Default Conceiving after being off bcp for 2 cycles

    I've heard it can take 6-12 months. 7 months for me and so far no luck. Some people fall pregnant 1st cycle off though, so anything is possible.

    Good luck

    I was off the pill 6 months before we had DD. We weren't trying though and I was pretty regular straight off the pack.

    I was off it for 2 months before falling pregnant but I was just lucky they say it can take 6-12 months if not longer. It's different for everyone. I was only on it for about a year.

    Default Conceiving after being off bcp for 2 cycles

    My mum was on it for 12 years n she fell straight away. She never got another period after stopping until after I was born.

    I was on the pill from 14-21, then went on implanon for 4 years (21-24) then the nuvaring for 2.5 years (24-26). I was off all contraception just using condoms from august last year until we married in June, so nearly 12 months. Period cycle was 28-42 days with an average of 35. We fell first attempt in June using a maybe baby. 22 weeks n all going well so far.

    Everyone is different.

    I went off the pill 4.5 weeks ago. I O'd at day 29 into my cycle (confirmed by both OPK and blood test) and am currently in the TWW. AF is due approx 8/11. I was on BC from 15 - 21. Removed it for approx 4 months, in that time I learnt I have a 42 day cycle. Went back on it for approx 9 months.

    O ing on day 29 for me is perfectly 4 weeks in to my 6 week cycle which is right on time.

    Unfortunately, It can be all over the shop for some people. Some people take 3-6 months to get the hormones back in rhythm etc.

    Its hard, I would have never gone on BC if I knew it would be this annoying!
