How long after coming off the pill did it take you to conceive?


Just curious since I wasn't on any birth control when we conceived our first. I just stopped taking my pill two days ago but AF is due on Friday so I know I'm out for this cycle. Just curious how many cycles it took for you to conceive after coming off birth control pills?

I have read of some getting pregnant the first month, others taking years and everything inbetween. I personally came off the pill after 10 years of being on it and am on my 9th cycle of TTC. Hopefully you are one of the lucky ones that catches right away!

It took me 6 cycles and I had been on the pill for 20 months. Good luck and Baby Dust to you!

Ttc #1, I came off after 10 years at the beginning of Jan. We had to wait until beginning of March to start trying and then I conceived in June. The first cycle we were not using birth control we knew there was zero chance of conceiving as hardly bd that month and not at the right time.

I came off the pill to ttc #2 at the beginning of March this year after about 22 months on it and just got a bfp yesterday on 2nd cycle. I feel so lucky!

Fingers crosssed it happens quickly for you.

I conceived immediately. I had been taking the pill for just over 9 years. I took my last pill on Feb. 4th, had a withdrawal bleed a few days later, got my bfp March 7th.

That pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage in April, but my OB said it had nothing to do with me conceiving so quickly. My lining was fine and everything else looked good. Likely a chromosomal problem.

Thank ya'll for the replies. That makes me a little more hopeful that it could happen sooner rather than later. So since stopping the pill now about 4 days ago I started heavily bleeding last night (assuming my cycle came early since it wasn't due to start until this Friday.) Is this my cycle or just a random bleeding from stopping the pill? I'm not sure if I should count this as cycle day #1 or not? It feels and seems like AF so I'm just going to assume so and start to count this as my first cycle starting yesterday.

Michelle I'd count yesterday (when the bleeding started) as day 1. You've got very little else to go on at this point and this is a bleed, albeit a withdrawal one rather than a 'real' period.

If you don't conceive this month then you'll have a better idea next cycle, but if you are lucky and catch the egg this month this is the best you have to have a rough idea of dates from.

Are you planning on temping or using opks or anything?

I attempted temping with my first pregnancy but forgot how to. Could you refresh my memory? I remember needed a certain type of thermometer. Also, I used opk's previously and plan on using them again. I just order the wondfo bulk supply of them with the pregnancy tests online. That's how we got our first BFP with our daughter. 🙂

Also, is there still a chance for me to conceive this month just coming off the pill? My doctor told me it could take up to three months or more for my cycles to regulate enough to conceive. Just wondering if there's any hope that this bleed really is AF and I could ovulate this cycle? Sorry so many questions but this is our first time TTC coming off any form of birth control.
