  • well, I ended up getting pregnant right after I stopped using birth control. Some say to wait a few months, I'm not sure the reasoning behind it though.

  • I think since you've had your first period since getting off of birth control your chances are pretty high. May want to try and track your fertile days using some ovulation kits at home. Good luck to you two ;)

  • eh lol I was on the pill for like 12 yrs and was barely off for 3 months and found out I was preg so as far as I am concerned assume you can get preggy right away and be ready!! ;)

  • it takes a month for the pills to start working so it takes about that long to get them to stop. as for the starting early your body was on a hormone raiment then taken off it's going to do some funny things for a little while. give it some time, when you don't have a cycle at all then take a test.
