Getting Started on Getting Pregnant

(continued)

Going Off the Pill to Get Pregnant

How long does it take for the effects of birth control medication to subside? It's actually possible to become pregnant immediately after going off the pill -- as soon as the pill's hormones are out of your system -- although it often takes a few months before ovulation begins normally again.

Is it safe to conceive right after you go off the pill? Yes. Women who conceive immediately after going off the pill are as likely to have a healthy baby as women who waited a few months in between.
