Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

After stopping the pills it can take from 3 months to a year to conceive.Since pill causes changes in the hormonal levels it takes time for the ovulation to be regularized.It can vary in every woman as the body behaves differently.If you are trying to get pregnant after stopping the pills:
Have a healthy nutritious diet.
Start taking Folic Acid supplement.
Quit smoking and alcohol.
Avoid any stress.

Take Care!
