When To Stop Bc

to pill or not to pill - April 12

my bf and I have decided to start trying to get pregnant. I am on the pill, but just started a new pack (4 days in) should I wait until the end of this cycle to give up the pill or can I just stop taking them now since I am only a few days in?

I stopped taking my pills during week 2 or 3 of the pack and got pregnant during my first ovulation (after I had af one time). You might bleed again because your hormones will be out of wack, but you can stop now if you want. On the instructions that I have, if you miss more than one or two pills they instruct you to throw away the rest of the pack and use a back up birth control (condoms or whatever) until the next time you have your period, then to start a new pack. So I don't think there would be a problem. It is likely you will not get pg until you have a regular period off the pill.

My doctor told me to wait 3 months after going off the pill because even though you can get pregnant, there's a slightly higher chance of miscarriage since your hormones will still be out of whack.
