I've been on BCP for 8 years steady and have just taken my last pill on Sunday. I was just wondering if anyone can offer advice on how being on the pill for such a long time effected their chances of TTC?

well some people dont get affected at all and get preggers right away while people like me who had been on the pill for 6 years took me 1 1/2 years to finally get preggo.

I was on the pill for 11 long years! It took about 6 months for my periods to become normal again; then I got pregnant about 7-8 months after that. It all depends on your body; the pill and how long you were on it I think.

I went off the pill in June after 16 yrs on. Each month my period starts on a day later which means I ovulate on different days each month. I've been told that you need to be off the pill for 3-6 months before TTC so that your cycles regulate. Good luck...I'm right there with you.

i was on the birth control pill since I was 13 (i always had really bad cramps and it helped control them) I took the pill for 8 years exactly and it took me 3 months to conceive :)

Thanks for all your support & encouragement... although now I have to go to the dr's on Monday as she got my blood tests back and wants to "talk".. I'm crossing my fingers that it's just a vaccination that I need!

I was on the pill about 12 years. We got pregnant 6 months after stopping them.

My best friend was on the pill 10 years and got pregnant the first month she stopped taking them.

Thanks... I think that I will be fine, considering that one month about 8 months ago I didn't take the pill (I had forgotten the first day, so I didn't take them that month) and I remember having cm. Since I've been on the pill for so long at that point I didn't even realize what all the ewcm was! silly me. anyways, thanks for answering!
