me me me!! I was on the pill for absolute years then one month, I took my break, had a period, then stupidly ran out of the pill, by the time i got a new packet I was a few weeks into my cycle, I thought id wait till the first day of my next period to start taking the pill again - but that period never came! I somehow thought as I had been on the pill for so many years I had built up a slight resistance to falling pregnant, and it would have taken me a few months to become fertile due to the pill still being in my system - not true happened straight away!!!

I was on the pill for about 5 yrs. got off it four months before getting pregnant. I did have trouble getting a period. I actually missed my period the month before I got pregnant.

I was on the pill for about 2 months. My periods were extremely irregular and I was actually worried this meant I would have a hard time getting pregnant. I got the pill to try and regulate my cycle. I wasnt very good at remembering to take it so I dont even know how it could have worked..I did ok the first month and since I wasn't s_xually active at the time I decided to wait a few weeks before I started the next pack of pills. The next month I did horrible I forgot to take it so many times I had to throw half the pills out cause there was no use. Than about 2-3 weeks later I concieved. I am 14 weeks now and it seems like a miracle that I actually got pregnant. So I'd say that it is very possible to get pregnant as soon as you stop taking the pill however I hear for most people it takes some time. My logic tells me that maybe the longer your on the pill the harder it is to concieve right away.

With my first child, I got pregant while on the pill. With my 2nd, it took 3 months after I stopped taking the pill at the end of the pack, & I got a regular period each month in the meantime. This is our 3rd & final, & I've been off the pill for 2 weeks. So far no period, no pregnancy either though. Although I stopped this time after taking the first 5 of the pack, so probly messed up my cycle. I know, way to go, huh! Good luck to you! And a big congrats to you, Danielle!!:)

hi...with my first child i got pregnant straight away after coming off the pill and i'm pregnant again now even tough i never stopped taking my pill! i think it depends on the individual person because i know of friends who have waited months after coming off it to finally get pregnant...hope this help s x

Hi, I was on Orth for about 7 months. I got off of it in March after my periode, and got pregnant in April, I am now 7 1/2 weeks.

Hi.I got pregnant coming right off the pill. I stopped my pill when my son was 11 months old, I thought it might take awhile to concieve,we had troubles before him, but when I went off the pill in the middle of Nov, I never got a period in Dec,so I tested and it was neg,went to the doc and he told me it was normal to maybe not have a period for a month or two,so when Jan came I still had nothing,bought another test,and lo and behold, that positive sign came up right away!I was already 8 weeks along! I must have ovulated pretty much right after I got off the pill and got pregnant. I now have a beautiful 21 month old daughter from it. mother to 2 wonderful children!!!
