I have been off of birth control for 6 months now and still no prego! We don't have a lot of sex we just thought it would have happened by now. I am healthy, already with one child, but he is older than me (32). Does his age have to do with it possibly? Im worried that it might be me!

  • BC should have already worn off. I was on depo which is the shot that lasts 3 months and I heard stories that it took some women up to 18months to get prego after the end of their last round but aI got prego 3 months after my last round. But I got healthier, and did a light cleanse on my body, basically fiber and antioxidants and a mild laxative to help the chemicals leave my body. Also try to not worry about it. I heard the second you take your mind off of it and stop stressing itll happen for sure.
