Hi I was wondering how soon can you get pregnant after stopping the pill? I have been through alot in the past year, loosing twins last Feb and having a D&C. Just went off the pill around 2/3 wks ago & due anytime now for my period.I will be 34 this summer & just wondering if my age has anything to do with it. I have 2 older boys but I had them in my 20's with no problems. I had a miscarriage about 5 years ago, got pregnant in Oct '10 & delivered twins at 23 wks. Lost them both, had a D&C & was told I could still get pregnant. Just nervous & scared. Is it true your really fertile after stopping bc? Or is that a wives tale? I feel "old" with all my body's been through. I am very healthy so I hope it can happen one more time for us!
It all depends on whether or not you are ovulating. Some women when they stop B/C they start ovulating the first month, others have to have medical intervention. I went off b/c 1 year ago and I had to take Clomid to restart ovulation. If you are ovulating then yes you can get pregnant. (Assuming there are no other issues) Hope that helps!
Thanks it does. I have been through this alot but never after loosing a child ( in my case 2!) And having a d&c. So I was unsure what my body would or would not do! Ill be 34 this year, so I think time is a lil against me! We are trying, if it happens then great, if not, well I know we tried. I have 2 angels in heaven looking out for me!
My last period was Feb 4th. I went off the pill shortly after that. Can you skip a month or just be really late? I took a test about 2 wks ago and it was neg. We are trying again, but I thought I'd get a lil something. Any idea's? Thanks
Did you finish your pack of pills or stop mid-cycle? What I have read suggests finishing the pack of b/c to lessen the chance of messing up your cycles.
Regardless of whether or not you finish the pack, when you go off b/c in can mess up your cycles. (Make you not ovulate, or just make it irregular) If you are not ovulating then you most likely won't have a period. I would recommend calling your dr and filling them in, they should be able to get you back on track or at least do a blood pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. I hope you get some answers! Keep me posted!
No I did not finish my pack. But looks like today Aunt flow is on her way! We just moved so I need to find a doc anyway. We are military so I never have the same doc for anything!
So since it looks like my flow is coming, maybe I will start to get on track again. Thanks for the info! I dont even know if it will happen again for us, with all the trouble we've had.....but we will try!
