My doctor said go for it so that's what I'll do. He told me that you are most fertile during the first couple of months off the pill.

I'd heard that too, and when I came off the pill last time I fell pregnant almost straight away, before I could work out my cycles. That's what I'm planning to do with number 2, and hopefully it'll happen so quickly again

I'd been on the pill for over 10 years and it didn't seem to make it harder. I had expected I'd need to give my body chance to settle down after coming off the pill and I thought my cycle was going to be all over the place, but I guess I was just lucky it wasn't.

I spoke to doctor last night and he just said I'm fine to try straight away after coming off the pill. I'm on microgynon.

I'm going to stop a few months before, about 5 months. Two reasons: 1) I want to know how my periods will be, as I have been on birth control for the last 8 years, and 2) I want to have something to look forward to in the near-er future than when I will actually be able to start TTC!

I've been making sure not to tell my hubby this... As much as I know he'll be great dad and is excited for a baby he won't want all the trying and such to be "over" too soon.

Well that explains why I got pregnant right after coming off the pill last time! I think it was month 2? But that first month we weren't 'trying'. 2nd month I felt myself ovulate and grabbed him and ran to the bedroom! lol. Legs up in the air and LO was created! haha. We're getting married in January, so I'll probably stay on the pill until after the wedding, then we'll start trying. I figure there will be a bit of drinking wedding week (going to mexico to get married) and afterwards celebrating with friends so I don't want to try until all that is done!
