  • Thats silly. Yes, some people get pregnant on birth controll but some get pregnant from their DHs cumming on their leg, lol. You are going to get pregnant when your body thinks you are ready regardless of how bad you want it before then. *baby dust if you need it!*

  • Just because someone else gets pregnant on the pill doesn't mean you will as well. You need to talk to your doctor and see what the best form of birth control for you

  • If you had troubles conceiving, I would consider a non-hormonal BC. You don't want extra hormones messing you up worse than you were before. Maybe consider a Paraguard IUD.

  • that is silly...and not true.being able to get preg has nothing to do with hormones.Hormones effect mood and other things, but look at it this way...If your hormones changing effected it when you stopped BC you would magically get preg right?Then people wouldn't be infertile, they would just take more and more hormones.For some couples that may help, but doesn't cause or not cause it...Talk to your doc about the best options for your body.

  • I work pregnant with my second when my first was 14 months. I took care of myself and then stopped when we wanted another baby. I took care of myself for 23 months and then was told that I couldnt have kids again because of some cancerous cells that they found. I stopped taking anythign because of what the docotrs had told me and got pregnant again after I stopped birth control and got pregnant with twins! I wasn't even expecting one child let alone two but were very happy especailly because I'm not suppose to have kids and there identical, werent not sure what the sex is yet but were still happy! Take care of yourself for as long as you need too!

  • A family friend tried for YEARS to get pregnant and couldn't so she adopted. 1 month after they brought home the boy, she became pregnant! She just had her 4th child a few weeks ago, so you really never know what can happen.
    Good luck.

  • I didnt take any birth control after having my son. Two years later, I just now got pregnant. Everyone is different.
