Q: How long after the pill should we wait before getting pregnant?

     

    A: You can start trying to get pregnant as soon as you stop the pill. It's both possible and safe. The hormones from the pill leave your body as soon as you stop taking it. Though it may take several months for your body to readjust and start ovulating again, no adverse pregnancy outcome is to be expected if you get pregnant quickly. Studies have shown that women who get pregnant right after stopping the pill have the same chance of delivering healthy babies when compared with women who waited several months.
