Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your normal periods and fertility can take about 1 month to 1 year’s time to return back after stopping with birth control use. If you are ‘feeling pregnant’ or suspect to be pregnant, get a blood HCG test done by your doctor. Urine pregnancy tests usually start being positive about 20 days post conception, and can show false negative results. Blood HCG tests are accurate in confirming pregnancy early (at about 11 days post conception).
If pregnancy is ruled out, then other problems like ovulation failure and hormonal imbalances should be investigated to start you with adequate treatment to help get back your periods and also decide on treatment to help you get pregnant.
Take care.
