How to get pregnant quickly...

I've been on the patch 1 year. I'm in the middle of a cycle on the patch (first patch of the month... When I decide I do want to get pregnant can I just take the patch of and start trying right away?

  • Get the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility and learn to chart!!!

    No faster way than to know EXACTLY when you are fertile!!

  • Yep but often those hormones will stay in your system a while and interfere with you getting pregnant quickly.

  • Yes, but regardless, there isn't anything you can do to get pregnant right away. That's up to biology. Just don't have sex constantly, it lowers your partners sperm count. GL

  • I lost 25 lbs a few months before I became pregnant....my Dr said the fairly large weight loss probably jump started my ovulation....I got pregnant the VERY first time we had unprotected sex :)


    Not sure if you need to loose weight...but thought I would offer a suggestion anyways...

  • Keep up with your cycles so you know when you are ovulating. For example my cycles averaged 28 days so I knew around day 14 or 15 I was ovulating. When I decided to TTC I got pregnant in less than a month.

  • Its possible but sometimes it takes awhile for your body to get back to normal after birth control. Good luck.

  • It can take a year to get pregnant. I went off the patch and was pregnant with my son within 2 months.

  • I had an IUD and I had it taken out, tested 3 weeks later and I was pregnant. I got pregnant right away after removal, but not sure what hormones affect your body with the patch.....ask your doc!
