Getting off birth control has...

messed up my periods, so I haven't been having them... Will that make it harder for me to get pregnant? Has anyone else had this problem? Was it hard for you to get pregnant?

  • It can take up to a year for your body to regulate out after stopping birth control.

    Yes, it will effect your ability to get pregnant. Since your hormones are not working in sequence, you aren't ovulating.

    How long have you been off of them? I didn't have a regular cycle until about 11 months after I stopped.
