    I came off the pill in Jan got my 1st AF (non pill related) in the march had 2 cycles then ended up PG. I was on it for 9 years but everyone is different and it can take your body time to get back to normal. Maybe you should speak to your doctor and see what they advise.

    my OH sister fell pregnant whilst on the pill 5 years ago then spent nearly 2 years trying this time when they wanted it so goes to show your body can be a bugger!!

    I was on the pill for about 11/12 years before coming off it a year ago, my periods carried on as normal once I came off the pill compared to what they were like when I was on it. The only variation has been with how long my cycle is, it now varies from between 27 days to 31 but otherwise everything has been regular. We've been TTC for about 4/5 months taking into account the breaks we've had due to holidays etc...My sister got pregnant on her 2nd month of trying and is now 6 weeks pregnant, they weren't too bothered about it but decided to take things as they come. Typical isn't it ?! :? Hopefully our turn will come soon.

    I was on the pill for about eight years and when I stopped it, it took eight months before my cycle went to a normal pattern.

    We gave it a year before trying just to be on the safe side though and it paid off

    I was on the pill for 5 years stopped taking it on 19 feb starting bleeding the next day. I got my bfp on march 20! I thought it would take months to get out my system!

    Hi there

    I was on the pill for 10 years and it took me about 9 months to get a regular cycle again. I have been off the pill 14 months now and they are still not great, last months cycle was 30 days, the month before 21!! Mine are usually between 30-33 days.

    Xxx
