Getting Pregnant after Birth Control - Page 2

Unless you were taking Depo-Provera, your cycles should return to normal within two or three months. Because it takes a little longer for Depo-Provera to get out of your system, it may take a little longer before you start having normal menstrual cycles. If you start trying to conceive before your period returns, you may have a hard time telling if your period is delayed due to issues from stopping birth control or if you are not getting your period because you are pregnant. Unfortunately, after stopping birth control, it may take some time for your body to get back on track. You may be get stuck in a sort of limbo as your body tries to regulate itself. You can’t move out of the first half of your cycle until you ovulate. And while you are waiting to ovulate you may start having some of the symptoms of ovulation but not actually ovulate. Some of these symptoms, such as breast tenderness and bloating, are very similar to pregnancy symptoms. This can make things even more confusing by making you feel like you could be pregnant when you are not. It is hard to know when your fertility will return and whether or not you will ovulate first or get your period first. If your period doesn’t return right away, the easiest solution would be to take a pregnancy test every few weeks until your period returns. If your period doesn’t return within six months, you should talk to your doctor.
