  • I don't think there is any particular waiting time, but I'm not a Dr. I would figure that your body would conceive when it was ready, so to speak.

  • With my first pregnancy, I tossed my pills in August and got pregnant the same month.

    My second pregnancy took me a year and a half.

  • With my first, it took a year and a half and some fertility drugs to get pregnant. With my second, I went off the pill in May and got pregnant in June.

  • I was off my pills for 4 1/2 years and never got pregnant. I had to go to my doctor to find the problem. I had a hormone imbalance because I stopped my pills, so that was why I wasn't getting pregnant. I went back on them for about a year to regulate my cycle and then in October'97, I got pregnant with my son! He truly is my miracle baby!

  • With my first two pregnancies, I got pregnant while on the pill. This time I stopped taking it in August, and it took until April to get the positive.
