Hey everyone!

I'm just wondering-- How many of you ladies got pregnant with multiples in the first month or two after stopping birth control pills?

I stopped taking mine (after 3 years) at the end of March, and I'm 4 weeks pregnant now. ...I kinda have a suspicion my tadpole might be *two* tadpoles, but want to see how common this actually is!

Thanks in advance!!

This is how my twins came to be. I must have ovulated from both sides 2wks after my mirena IUD was pulled. I kept waiting for AF to show so I could begin charting to conceive, not realizing I was already pregnant. Though I had absolutely no idea it would be twins, big big shock!
Congrats on your bean(s)! Let us know if your suspicion is right

I have heard of that as well. Our twins are IVF twins...no luck for us after I quit BCP.

I had heard that too, though we had an MFM speak to our multiples club and he told us that was just an old wives tale (I think maybe no one has ever really taken the time to look at it).

I had been off BC for 8 or 9 months when our were conceived, but it was only a month after we had a m/c at 8 weeks. I kind of think that is similar to going off hormonal b/c in that your body is dealing with extra hormones still. I know several women who have gotten pregnant with twins within a month or so of having a m/c. Is it related at all? I have no idea

Keep us updated though
