I have been taking birth control pills for about 6 years, how long do you think it would take me to get pregnant if i stop taking them?

It all depends on your body. I was on bc for 11 years, went off & was ovulating the next month. My cousin was on for 10 years, went off & it took her almost 9 months to start ovulating...

I was on bc for 15 years and started ovulating the next month. I got pregnant the second month. but I think this just depends on your body b/c I have heard a lot of people say a minimum of 6 months.

I was on the pill for 10 years, I went off and got pregnant 3 weeks later, it took my mom 9 months to get pregnant after being on the pill for 5 years. I guess there's no way to tell how long it will take, just be patient and good luck.

it took me 1 1/2 months

I was on the pill for 11 years and it took me 7 months to get pregnant. I was actually surprised at how long it took, because before I was on the pill, I had 4 unplanned pregnancies. It seemed to take longer to get pregnant once I was ready and wanting to do so, but it still wasn't too long, considering how long other people have to wait.

do you become more fertile after you stop using bc

I was pregnant within 2-3 months. Much faster than I was expecting.

i am 9 weeks pregnant and got pregnant whilst taking birt control!i wwas always regular so this came as a happy i guess there are no real rules...perhaps when you actually stop taking it your body goes through changes which take a while to settle before you can concieve, but im not sure..i guess my baby just slipped through the net..he he

I went off the pill in October and it's April 18th, and I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I thought it would take longer. I was on the pill for about a year and half. But I guess everyone is different.

I am getting married in November and want to get pregnant soon thereafter, but I don't want to be before. I have been taking the pill for 8 years. When should I stop taking the pill?

You can get pregnant immediately after stopping birth control! It all depends on your body and when it regulates itself. There is really no guarantee, and its hard to plan the exact moment of conception.
