The pill, help!

So here's the deal... I've been religious about taking my pill up until this past Sunday. (It's now Monday) Last week we decided to start trying for kids so I took the pill Sunday but threw away the rest. (I had Mon-Sat before the placebos) On Monday I did not take the pill and we had sex. Chances of conceiving? Are we better off waiting until after my period? Or are the chances better before and after? I've had light spotting since Sunday, which is pretty normal for me before my period... and if we did conceive how will I know?

I would advise you to wait until after your next period. Because you just stopped taking the pill so recently, you may not have the best chances. Wait until you get your period, which is when your menstrual cycle will begin. Your best chance of conceiving is around 14 days after your cycle begins, which is when you ovulate. I hope this helped! (: wish you the best of luck!
