how likely...

i stopped taking the pill the 12th of this month and got my period on the 14th. my cycles are usually normal. my husband and i had sex on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd..i know its better to do it closer to ovulation but hes in the military and was sent out so thats not possible. how likely are we to have conceived? is it common to get pregnant right after stopping bc?

  • I got preg 4 times WHILE on birth control, with one ovary..

    I think there is no rhyme or reason... If you are meant to get pregnant,, it will happen.

  • You could be since you were trying close to your ovulation. It depends on how long your cycles are ...

  • it depends on the level of bc left in your system, and how close you hit the ovulation mark AND if any got threw.. These are all ifs and buts. The only sure way to tell, is to wait until next month and take a test. I know, waiting sucks, but just keep an eye out for the signs, and keep your hopes up.
