Hiya I just thought I would comment on what someone said earlier (sorry not sure of the name now) but I came off the pill after 15 years, didnt have a break and fell pregnant instantly.

When I told my midwife this she said that there is a two week window when you first come off the pill when you are really fertile then it goes down for a while and eventually back up again, so basically you might be best not waiting and just going for it as soon as you come off the pill it worked for me and I will be trying it again when we start TTC next month

Here's hoping it works again!!

Hi, I have to say I was shocked by what happened to me when I came off the pill as most of the time you are brought up to think you miss one pill and you could be pregnant so easily. It took me 9 months to get back my period after stopping the pill. I have heard you are more fertile in the first month after stopping the pill, but for me it has been so hard as it is two years since stopping the pill and Im still not pregnant. Having said that I have ovulation / luteal phase problems so it could just be linked with all that. My advice would be to factor in it may take your body a while to adjust as even though lots of other people I know got pregnant pretty quickly, they also had really long cycles etc (45 - 50 days) at first. Hope this helps and best of luck. Oh and just to say agnus castus seemed to work for me in bringing my period back.

Take care

i was on the pill for 10years before coming off to try for baby #2. I had the withdrawal bleed, and we started TTC. However, I didn't ovulate/get my period for 6 months after that!! Once my cycles returned, it took 3 months to get pregnant
