Getting Pregnant After Being On Birth Control For 7 Years (Page 1)

Hi there,

my husband and I are trying to get pregnant. I have figured out when I ovulate and we have sex every other day from when my period ends to increase our chances. This is the 4th month of being off the pill. (tryphasil). Do you think I could get pregnant this soon or will it take a lot longer for it to get out of my system?

Pls respond.

Thanks

I have heard that it takes about 3 months for someone to get pregnant after they get off the pill, but not in my case! I got off the pill and had unprotected sex, then fell pregnant w/in a month after getting off of it! Everyone is different. It helps though if your periods are regular

How did you know you were prgnant? Just from having no period? Or did you have symptoms>,,

Yea, I didnt have a period. I knew that I had unprotected sex, and stupid stupid me thought, "oh, I cant get pregnant, the pill is probably still in my system" haha...I learned the hard way. But I felt like I was coming down with the flu...And its almost like you just know it, you just feel like you have never felt before....

Hi dreaa, i'm in the same boat as you hun. I've just come off the pill and this is our first month ttc. I have 2 weeks to wait for af, but I know by this time next week i'm going to be pulling my hair out. I've often been told average of falling is 3-6 months after coming off bc, mum took 2 monhts where as my aunty fell straight away....I guess it depends on your body! Good luck!!!
