Everyone is different! Some get pregnant right away, others take much longer. Average recovery from the effects of the Pill takes 3 - 18 months. It also depends on your reproductive health. If there were any fertility problems before you went on the Pill, they will still be there when you come off. Age is also a factor in fertility.
I was on BC pills for about 12 years or so and was told by my OB that it would take 6 months to a year to coneive. I stopped taking my pills one day and didn't think about TTC at all. Fast forward about 3-4 months later and I took a pregnancy test for the first time ever and was shocked to see a positive test! I was already about 11 weeks along and it turns out I conceived about a few weeks after stopping my pills but had no idea I was pregnant because I didn't feel pregnant and it was normal for me to go 3 months without having a period. So be ready for anything abd good luck TTC!

You should give your body at least 3 months off the Pill before trying. The Pill works by keeping the lining of your uterus thin, so that if conception occurs - the pregnancy can't continue. Waiting 3 months gives time for the uterine lining to build up again and reduce the chance of miscarriage.
