Trying to get pregnant
An_254823 posted:
I've been on the pill since I was 16 and I just stopped taking my birth control pills over a week ago. How long does it take for someone to get pregant? Is it possible during that next ovalation cycle. Or do you have to have your peroid and get back into a normal routine before you can get pregnant?

It depends on when you start ovulating again. Some women start ovulating right away (my cousin got pregnant her first month off the pill) while some women take longer.

Thanks for the reply! What is the best way to know you have started ovulating again. I did have some discharge 2 days before my ovulating app said was my most fertile day. I just got married and I'm just so ready & excited to start a family right away and waiting for Aunt Flo to show up to know for sure is taking too long.

There are ovulation kits you can try using.

Otherwise, you simply wait for menstruation to return as a symptom that ovulation has also returned.
