    I haven't been on the pill for over a year, only TTC for a couple of months.

    They say it's often a fertile time when you come straight off the pill and start TTC.

    A friend of mine recently got pg within 2/3 months of coming off it. Her cycles were all over the place though in that time.

    Have your cycles regulated after coming off it?

    Hi

    I came off the BCP in July 07 and we're on our 4 cycle TTC.

    YES!! I hate friends that look very smug at the fact that they conceived both of their children straight away even more!! If I didnt feel bad enough - I dont need anyone telling me how fertile they are in comparison to me and my OH! :wall:

    We conceived Isaac 6weeks after coming straight off contraceptive pill, but this time around its so far our 5th cycle TTC, so I don't think its set in stone when/how long it will take to get a BFP despite lifestyle etc I was drinking smoking and eating rubbish too, this time round I'm not yet its taking longer, go figure :lol:

    I came off early July, and am 10 weeks pregnant, so it can happen quickly!!

    Fingers crossed for you all! :hug:
