I was wondering if anyone knows how long you have to be off the pill in order to get pregnant? I've been on the pill for 3.5+ years now. I don't know when we will TTC, but I was just curious. I do go to the Dr next week for my checkup and I'll ask her anyway.

I know one lady that got pregnant within two months and another it took about 6 months. I think it just depends on the person : )

I think it totally depends on the person. I got pregnant while still on it.

It took us a year of not trying/not preventing to conceive. I was on it for 2 years.

It depends on the person. I hope it happens fast for you. :-)

I got pregnant on the pill and it only took my friend 3 months of trying after she got off the pill. I guess it depends on the person.

It depends on each woman. One of my friends got pregnant the month after she got off the pill, and one friend has been off for 2 years and still has not gotten pregnant.

My aunt was on the pill for many, many years and was able to get pregnant immeditaely after stopping. After she had that child, she got back on the pill and got pregnant while ON it. She had already been taking it for 3 years.

You just never know. :)
