  • Sometimes it takes a few months. Don't worry about it yet, especially since you just stopped using birth control and your hormones need time to settle down. Just keep trying. You can track your ovulation if you want to using test kits or a thermometer and a chart, but really, doctors don't even start talking about infertility till a woman has been having unprotected sex for six months to a year with no success.

  • I would get off the birth control it might take a couple months for your body to get back to normal after I stoped breastfeeding it took months to get m period back to normal . U can try taking Rose hip (natural vitamin) it helps regulate womens hormones.

  • Depo shots and brith control pills mess up your body's chemistry. I takes a while fo it to get reset, maybe even a year. My advice to you is to relax and enjoy the process and when it happens it will be wonderful.

  • It took my friend a whole year to get pregnant after being on birth control for 3 yrs. Your body has to readjust and it will take time. Don't force it, just enjoy your time right now. Trust me on that one :) Be patient and if you forget about it, that is when it most likely will happen.
