My first pregnancy (DS is now 3), was counted from the day I went off BC (I got my copper IUD out on the first day of my period, and found out I was pregnant about 6 weeks later.

I recently found out I am pregnant again.  I had a positive pregnancy test 21 days after getting my copper IUD out.

It took me three years to get my period back after Depo-Provera. After that I got pregnant almost immediately.

Thanks everyone We stopped the birth control last week. And my periods have been crazy so not sure when I was going to ovulate. (periods trying to figure when they are going to appear since losing tons of weight) and I ended up Ovulating the same as I always do and we were able to bd the day off.

We chose to wait at least 4 cycles so I could get my cycles regulated and hormones out of my system. My cycles regulated right away but we still just waited.
