How long after going off the pill can you get pregnant?

I stopped breastfeeding one month ago and stopped my birth control(the mini pill and I was on it for almost 2 years) 7 days ago because we have decided to start ttc. I just had my first normal period since I got done breastfeeding and it ended a couple days ago. How soon do you think I can get pregnant?

  • you can get pregnant next time you ovulate so id say this time around if your lucky it wont take long. try figuring out your cycle and track it you will have better luck that way of knowing when you are ovulating.

  • You can get pregnant immediately. However, your fertility isn't back up to 100% until about the one year mark (give or take depending on how long you've been on the pill)

  • That year mark comment is wrong.

  • usually fertility returns to normal within 6 months- it can come back the 1st month, it could take almost a year- the safe answer is usually within 6 months... has to all come out of your system.. and the EBF isnt going to help- its nature's child-spacing....

  • It took me exactly 6 months after I got off the pill to get pregnant with 2 of my children. We were TTC the whole time but I got pregnant the 6 month with both of them.

    With my 3rd I wasn't on BC.

  • Each person is different but it could happen the first month. With my DS I went off the pill and conceived 2 weeks later. This time I'm not as fortunate.

    Good Luck!
