  • It took us four months. It does, however, vary from person to person. It took my best friend nine. I've also heard of it taking a year or more.

  • it's different for everyone. I was on birthcontrol straight for four years (skipping periods) due to my endometriosis. I quit taking it and 3months later I was pregnant. very exciting because my husband and I worried with my endo/surgeries and with him being in remission and had endured chemo/radiation

  • Within 3 months for both of my pregnancies. I've *heard* that the first three months after stopping birth control are your most fertile. But, I could be wrong, everyone is different.

  • yeah this is all stuff that I have read but I wanted personal experience I find that to be more correct then "everything" that is written in papers. Thanks guys.
