Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to predict the return of your normal fertility. It would depend on how fast your body gets back to normal after stopping with all hormonal birth control use. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Keep lying still for sometime after intercourse (do not change positions after ejaculation has occurred). Put pillows under buttocks to minimize spill. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance with getting pregnant.
Take care.
