Are you more fertile after you get off BC?

I had a miscarriage on Thursday and now that I'm feeling less emotional, I've decided to wait a little longer to get pregnant again. I wanted to get on BC then get off in October so I could try and get pregnant in November or December.

  • depends what kind. Depo... it can take 6-18 months to become fertile again. I think the low dose pills might be what you want/need.

  • I was just going to get on Yaz (the pill). Would that make me less fertile or more after I stopped?

  • I don't know about YAZ, but IMO a low dose pill would probably be best for what you want to do. Anothe opinion is, you should probably let your uterus rest longer before trying to get pregnant again. Just to make sure it can hold the baby.

  • You got pregnant while on Yaz? With my first I was taking it but it was when I was getting married and kept forgetting to take it and doubling up lol. You can only double up so much until it's just not working anymore haha.
