  • No one can answer this.... it's different for every person. It could be right away or it could take a year

  • Soon....some people say it take a while for the birth control to get out of your system. Not true. I got pregnant about 2 months after stopping birth control pills

  • You can actually get pregnant just by missing doses of birth control, so it could be as soon as your next ovulation or most people get pregnant within a year.

  • with my second after the depo it took 4 months with this baby it was 6 months but we weren't trying till the last month for these so it could've happened sooner.

  • my aunt needed 3 years.

    for me it was only a few months.

    a friend of mine needed about 2 weeks..

    so yeah, everyone is totally different.
