Pregnancy after no period for 3 years ?

User Profile
I was on the mirena for 1 year and thus skipped my period for that year. I had it removed after a year and went back on Yazmin for 2 years but always skipping the suger pills. I haven't had a period for 3 years now and although my husband and I have 2 kids, we would like one more. What is my chances to fall pregnant again?

Thank you for your question on

Mirena, a contraceptive intrauterine system is a very effective device in preventing pregnancy. Yasmin is an oral contraceptive pill and is also very effective in preventing pregnancy.

Pregnancy after stopping oral contraceptive pills usually happens without any difficulty; however a delay can be expected if one has irregular periods before the start of oral contraceptive pills. One should wait till periods become regular after stopping oral pills, before they try for pregnancy. The chances of any birth defects in fetus after pregnancy are also not present/

Thank you.
