  • What do you mean by birth control? If you mean the pill you can ovulate a couple of weeks after you quit and get pregnant.

  • I was on BC pills for 10 years and I was only off for a little over a month and then I got pregnant. I thought it would take a long time until it would happen. but I was so wrong!

  • you can listen to docs, other moms, and tv shows but bottom line it depends on when you get a fertilized egg any where from days to months after ending birth control, it also depends on bc! depo immidietly, iud up to 6 months, pill 1-3 months.

  • For me, I was off for 1 month, and got pregnant the first time I ovulated. I honestly thought it was going to take a few months as well, but nope.=) Like pp said, it will differ from person to person. Good luck!
