Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I was wondering if anyone here has or knows of anyone that got pregnant immediately after stopping birth control pills. I understand it is not that uncommon to get pregnant after the first month of menstration, but what about getting pregnant before you first natural period comes after getting off the pill? Does any one have experience with this?

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

WOW! I guess you are very fertile. How many pills did you miss if any?

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I stopped taking them in November, got PG in December, so yes you can get pregnant right away.

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I didn't miss any. Neither did my sister who had a 'birth-control-baby' last December. I heard that 1 in 20 women are getting pregnant while on the pill now. Anyway, it isn't uncommon, or exremely common to get pregnant right after stopping birth control. You might have just as good of chance as someone who was still on it since your body hasn't had time to adjust to being off the pill yet. Im not sure though since that wasn't the case for me. I just wanted to let you know that no protection is 100% and it seems as if contreceptions fail miserably with the women on this board

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I stopped taking birth control pills in September and got pregnant in October. I never had a period. I had been on birth control pills for 6 years!

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

Thank you all so much for your responses. For those of you, especially afmom3, that got off the pill, never had a period and got pregnant the next month - what were your signs/symptoms and how soon did they show up? After how long did you take a hpt that came up positive?

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I went off the pill at the end of June and got pregnant in July. I didn't even know I was pregnant, just thought my period would take a while to get back to normal. I think I had maybe two days of light bleeding, but nothing like a period. I got a really bad cold, was nauseous while in the car, and all of a sudden felt very sleepy. I finally took a pregnancy test in August and it was positive and got a blood test with the same results in September. So, I think it's pretty easy to get pregnanct after stopping the pill.

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I stopped taking BCP's in early November, thinking that it would take a while to get pregnant, but was pregnant by the end of December.

Re: Pregnancy After Stopping Birth Control Pills

I stopped my birth control in October, and was already taking a pregnancy test on the 31st of that month, and it was positive. I didn't even have my first period after coming off the pill. My first symptom was that I kept getting bad dizzy spells, and I knew something wasn't right, and I was also craving chinese food, which I normally can't stand

I had my period on September 21 after stopping the pill. I took a pregnancy test on October 29. The main symptom that I had was tender breasts and just feeling "not quite right". Also, I remeber that I was cramping a little and thinking that my period was going to start any minute! lol!
