How Long Does it Take to Get Pregnant After Birth Control?
Sunday, August 9th, 2015
Confession: I have never been on birth control.
And I know that fact may come as shocking to you, especially when you also hear that I have had three children in four years. But hey - that's the way we wanted our family and we couldn't be happier. But with my lack of knowledge on what it takes to, you know, try to conceive, I was curious about how the widespread use of birth control affected women after they decided they were ready to expand their families.
So, I wanted to know, for all the mommas-to-be wondering: how long does it take to get pregnant after birth control?

I stopped birth control in May of 2012. We didn't necessarily wait, but we didn't "try" either. I never charted things, took temperatures, etc. We just lived like normal and had sex highs and lows like normal! My boyfriend fixes heat so in the winter he works so much he's too tired for much else sometimes! (Although he will deny that!)
I found out I was pregnant May 2013! I'm 19 weeks pregnant with my first, just found out its a boy.
