How long before TTC are (or have) you coming off the pill?


I REALLY hope we can TTC straight after our wedding in June 2012, but it all depends on jobs. I wanted to come off the pill 9-12 months before TTC, but if we've still not got better paid jobs then it may be too early. I'm on the pill for mood swings amongst other things, and it helps.

How long will you leave your body to adjust before TTC?

I'm not on the pill anymore as I only had my daughter 4 months ago and we plan on ttc next month but when we decided to ttc last year I came off the pill in August and we started ntnp and I fell pregnant in September. I'd been on the pill for 12 years so expected it to take a lot longer!

I'll be taking agnus castus as soon as I come off, so that should speed things up with my cycles (it did do before).

We started ttc as soon as I came off the pill. The last day I took it was Oct 14 and I had stopped it midpack.

oh this is interesting. I am unsure what to do really. My head tells me to wait a couple of months but my heart tells me just to go for it as soon as I come off!

I stopped my patches first week in September (you wear them 3 weeks on, one week off for AF), and we're not TTC yet (though this is more down to finances and employment problems than planning). I'm hoping to start TTC sometime between Nov-Feb (this is very dependent on whether DH gets a new job soon and whether I get invited to an interview for a job I'm going for later this month!).

One thing I will warn you though (without being too graphic) is your body can be very cranky about coming off BC, especially if you've been on awhile (I was on mine for several years). Though I haven't found that my cycles are that irregular. From my perspective it's worth having 2-5 months off to give your body time to recover and level out your hormones before the madness of pregnancy.

I have been on the pill for 8 years. We are TTC in December so I will be coming off the pill in August, so will have 3 months pill-free! woohoo!!

Apparently the pill thickens the lining of your womb so if you get pregnant too early,t here is a higher chance of miscarriage
