How long after stopping birth control did you get pregnant?

I have heard it can take up to 3 months. I have only been off the pill for 2 weeks but I had a normal length period (like I had before the pill) and I am hoping we may be pregnant again. I know the day I got pregnant with our daughter and this time around we used the same day to try to get pregnant again. Maybe I am jumping the gun and need to wait a few more weeks to try before getting my hope up.

  • Well I got pregnant immediatly after I stopped- my next ovulation cycle, that is. I had my last period April 3 2008 and then got pregnant sometime around the 18th. Best of luck to you!

  • The mirena I was using doesn't need time to wear off....we were surprised we got pregnant within a week and a half of getting it out.

    -surprised because it took us a year to get pregnant the first time.

  • Agree with ANON I was on the Depo shot when I got pregnant with my first and for my second, it was like I missed a pill and was pregnant.
