Hi, once you stop taking almost any kind of birth control you can get pregnant, it all depends on your monthly cycle but you can get pregnant fastbnow that you stoped taking your pill, hope this helps

See the only thing is I have no idea about my ovulation cycle, b/c I've been on the micronor for 5 months and it totally messed my whole body up. I had a full blown heavy period every other week for a full 7 days when I used to only have a 3-4 day light period. I was having 3 periods a month, pmsing all the time, migraines, I felt like crap and nasty all the time. And the nurse practicioner I see wouldn't listen to me, so I quit taking it, and I feel great now!! But I'm having sex, I wouldn't mind to get pregnant I'm just wondering if it could happen fast...

Ok so if your trying to get pregnant then when you do have your period count the first day as day one and then from days 10 to 18 is when you will be most likely to ovulate, if your trying hard then having sex at least three times a week will help since sperm can live in you anywhere from 3 to 7 days, and you could always go to the pharmacy and buy a ovulation kit, that will tell you when your ovulating which is easier then counting days I think, so let me know if this helps and good luck, Kelly

Haha I got pregnant ON this pill within the first two months of taking it at the exact same time every day! So I think it's safe to say it shouldn't take you long once you are off the pill - best of luck!

With this pill that is not 100% true. I started this pill in Sept 2012 after I gave birth to my second child. I took it for almost 1 year, the entire time I breastfed him and didn't have a period at all. I then stopped taking the pill because my hubby and I wanted another child. It is now November 2014 and I still haven't been able to concieve. I was told be a nurse that the pill can build up a lining on your uterus and it can take 1-1/2 years to shed it. Because your body doesn't have a period your old stuff doesn't have a place to go and just builds up. And to top it off, the pills made me stop producing eggs. I had to be put on Provera (Not DEPO) so that it would help me produce progesterone and I would start making eggs again. So be wary of this pill. I will never as long as I live take another birth control pill again. This pill messed me up so bad!! It has been about 1-1/2 years since I stopped taking them. I am currently 4 days late with negative tests. free discount card
