I'm planning to stop taking the pill on the 1st January so it will be 9 months before we TTC. I've been on the pill for a long time so I don't have a clue what my normal cycle is and how long it will take to get it all out of my system.

I have been off the pill for a long time. I dont belive in using it anymore. So we just use other natural methods

I plan on coming off about 6 months early. If we end out trying right away then awesome. If not, I want my body to be ready to go when we do.

broody21 - Well as you already know I've been off the pill for a year now and my cycles still haven't improved so I really want to at least have regular ones before ttc. Why isn't it just simple lol

3-6 months maybe, only because I hate being on the pill, so hopefully we might NTNP for a little while.

But think I read on this forum before about a super fertile time after you come off the pill? ...I wouldn't want to miss that...

Hi,

I came off my pill just after our honeymoon and so glad I did. My skin was much better when I was on the pill and I knew for certain I wasn't going to be on my period during my wedding or honeymoon!

We got our on our 4th cycle after 3 natural periods. Luckily my cycles were 26 days, 30 days and 31 days so fairly regular. Sadly I went on to miscarry at 11 weeks but I've been told it was extremely unlikely that being off the pill for only 4 months was the reason. My friend who fell pregnant accidentally on the pill had a healthy little girl and a good pregnancy.

Its 100% personal choice. I was on the pill for about 9 years so had totally forgotten what my cycles were like prior to taking it!

xxxx

I'm going to stop taking the pill when my last packet runs out in January and not get another prescription and see what happens!

Last time i came off the pill we TTC straight away but it took a while for my body to 'wake up' and we finally conceived my baby girl a year later, so when we TTC #2 i'll be coming off it about 3 months before we want to TTC but will be NTNP inbetween.
