How long after stopping the pill?
Hello, everyone! I’m a newbie but saw a thread and loved the support received so wanted to come here with my questions.
I started the pill about 2 months ago. My first month I wasn’t very good about taking it. My second month I stopped halfway into the pack. My husband and I decided i shouldn’t take the pill because of the side effects and risk of stroke. We decided it was time to try for a baby soon after.
I didn’t take the pill on the 8th, the 9th I doubled up. The 10th was my last day taking the pill. We had unprotected sex the 9th, and it happened to be my normal ovulation time. So far, and I know it’s still early, I have no signs of breakthrough bleeding or AF. I’ve heard that ovulation can occur right after stopping the pill, so I’m stuck wondering if I ovulated right after. Sperm can live for up to 5 days in the body, so if I ovulated right after stopping, then do I have a chance of getting pregnant? Does not taking the pill for very long increase my chances? I appreciate any help or any experiences shared!
