Conception after birth control pills

I stopped my birth control pills in October. I have not had a period since, it's been 3 1/2 months. I'm trying to get pregnant and no luck yet. . . I guess I was just wondering if anyone else has had anything happen like this before, and if it's normal to not have a period for this long. Also, can I get pregnant if I stopped my period and haven't had one? Can I still ovulate?? Any information would help..thanks!!

Ovulation occurs before menses. There's a chance that u could get pregnant but a small one. Also after being on hormonal birth control sometimes ppl are irregular for awhile. I would talk to my doc about prescribing something to start period-especially since you are trying. Good Luck

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its very common problem in individual who are taking pills. I would suggest you to take GnRH analogues on 5 consecutive days to settle this issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
