  • It depends and is different for every person. You may get pregnant right away or it may take a while. If you want the baby now go ahead and start trying. Def after first period you can get preg.

  • You're fertile cycle is 7 to 14 days after your period. A good general rule of thumb would be those two weeks in the middle of the 28 days. Say you have your period on November 1 - then November 7-14 would (or should) be about the time your are ovulating.
    Also I wouldn't expect a pregnancy for at least 4 months. Yes, it can happen before and in some cases take a little longer, but 4 months is a good average for after you've stopped birth control.

  • I have an unusually long cycle so I have to count backwards from when my next period would start 14 days and that is when I ovulate, I should be furtile for about three days before and the day after. Thats what I was told at least, still trying, but its only been 9 months.

  • Once you stop taking the pill, the hormones are out of your body quickly, usually within a couple of days. When the hormones are gone your body needs to start again on its own to function. That mean it will start producing follicles again, which eventually lead you to ovulate. Everybody acts differently, some may take a couple of weeks to ovulate, other may take some months, but in general your body should be in "normal mode" within less than two to three months after stopping the pill. So if you now ovulate normally, that means your body is back to its normal rhythm.

    Good LUCK!
