    TTC after being on the pill..

    Basically I went on the pill to change my cycle (af is apways here when dh is home.. so am rrying to just adjust af by a week) I might just stay on the pill for 3 or 4 months to try and keep it like that when I come off.. But my question is I know that being on the pill for too long can make it hard to get pg when you come off the pill.. Is 4 months too long? I would like to do it now but dh isnt ready so as soon as he is id like to jump straight into it and maybe get it in the dirst few tries.. Basically dont wat to to make it any hardee dor us..

    Excuse teible spelling and such am on my phone.. Lol

    i was on the pill for a number of years - when we decided we were almost ready to ttc i stopped & my cycles returned quickly. we only tried for one or two cycles before i fell PG with DS.

    I was on the pill (Levlen) without a break for 9 years. I came off it in Jan 2010, had AF in Feb, was UTD in July without actively TTC. I sadly miscarried, but fell of again in Feb 2011. It's different for everyone - I did have a GP say that because I had been on it for such a long time to wait 6 months to allow my cycle to return and regulate before TTC but I'm not sure whether that was based on anything? Goodluck hun xx

    I was on the pill for about 15 years without a break. First cycle off I ovulated (OWIE) and got AF, bam.

    Took almost 18 months to fall pg but that was due to other issues. Plenty of people conceive quickly.

    Good luck!

    I was on the pill for 10 years, came off and 4 month later still hadn't ovulated and no AF. So started seeing an FS but we caught that first cab off the ranks and fell pregnant before I'd even had one round of AF!!
