There is no risk for you or your pregnancy if you conceive right after you cease taking the pill
There are a lot of rumours and myths surrounding pregnancy and the pill. The truth is, you can conceivably start trying to conceive as soon as you stop taking the pill, although it is is generally recommended that you finish your current cycle of birth control to prevent any unwanted bleeding mid-cycle. In any case, once you have stopped taking your birth control pill, you will know your ovulation is back to normal once you start getting your period regularly.
Things to know about the pill and pregnancy
- If you get pregnant while birth control, stop taking the pill immediately.
- If you haven't had your period for 3 months after quitting birth control, it is worth talking to your Ob/Gyn.
- It is generally recommended that you use a barrier method and allow for a few cycles of normal periods before trying to conceive.
