how long did it take you after comming off birth control to get pregnant?

I was on birth control for almost 3 years to prevent getting pregnant again then I married my hubby and came off it and just wonder if anyone has went through this before?

  • For us it is always within the first month off trying. I am sure that it varies greatly though. The last time I was on it for 3 years and the result was the same.w

  • 9 months.

    I wasn't on BC prior to TTC the next 2 and I got pregnant right away.

    Most articals I've read says it can take up to 6 months for the BC to leave your system.
