Anyone get pregnnat within days of stopping birth cnotrol?

So I was just reading about the Rebound Effect. Its the theory that getting pregnant during your first ovulation after discontinuing birth control increases your chances of having twins. I was wondering if anyone had this experience if so what birth control were you on?

  • YUP! I was supposed to get a shot the first to the month, but we wanted to get pregnant some time soon (Ha Ha) and by the end of the month I was pregnant. I was told it would take at least 3 months to become pregnant and that was if I was lucky.

    But I was one of those who only had to THINK about being pregnant .... lol

    First child - Depo shot
    Then the pill and I was pregnant with twins but miscarried
    Second child was about a month after the miscarriage - no problems
    I have 2 great kids and now my tubes are tied up tight!

  • They don't recommend getting pregnant immediately after, and my experience is probably proof. I got pregnant within days of going off of the pill, and miscarried.

  • i stopped bc in august and am still trying. this and lots and lots of yogurt is apparenlty supposed to make you hyperovulate, meaning a greater chance of twins, but not in every situation. i guess to if you take bc during different times of the day like say i took it at 10am today, but i don't take it until 5pm tomorrow. between 10am and 5pm tomorrow, your body is apparently hyperovulating then too. thats just what i heard though, not really sure if it's true, but it does make sense to me.
