can you get pregnant right after the pill

So i stopped taking the pill about 4 week's ago had what i thought to be a normal period on the 22 and it only lasted 3 day's so is there a chance i can still get pregnant even though it was only a 3 day period or do i have to wait for a longer period but then again mine are never that long to begin with it may last 4 day's...


my cycle is every 28 days

  • It usually takes about a month for the hormones to level out to normal before you can get pregnant again. Sometimes it wont take as long and some times it can take longer. It all depends. Good luck!

  • It can happen right away, or it could take months. It all depends on the woman, everyone is different.
