  • wait three months to get your hormones back to normal or you'll risk ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage

  • Every body is different when coming off hormonal BC. Some people get pregnant right away. Some people take a year or more.

    You can eat well dam execs and drink plenty of water to help your body return to fertile as quickly as it can.most people can get pregnant after a regular menstrual cycle.

  • k and yes i have been drinking plenty of water and also alot of people who i know get pregnant right away like as soon as they get off. so your right it depends on the body but what i have done is take a fertility and ovulation test and both of them were were good it said i was ovulating and it said i had a normal fertility.

  • It just depends on your body. Some people get pregnant immediately, no matter what type of BC they're on. With others, it's months. GL!
