  • The sad thing is I got pregnant while on birth control. Did it religiously. Guess I was that .1% huh? But anyway. Depending on the birth control on how soon you can get pregnant. If your BC still allowed you to have a period, you have a greater chance of getting pregnant right away because you still ovulated on a schedule. If it didn't, you would need to wait for your period to regulate better to have a better shot, some times takes up to a year. But you can be pregnant right away. Wait a week and test again. Try a different test. And hun, even those dollar store tests work. If you are pregnant, it will know. Good luck!

  • It took me almost four months to get pregnant with my first child off birth control and pretty much immediately after getting off bc for my second child. It probably had something to do with being the first & second child, though. I really don't think birth control will affect your chances much if it was bc pills.
