Hi All

New here. I've been on ortho-tri for about 4 years now (I'm 21). Occasionally I'll skip months and my period seems to stay regular whether on or off. But I am not ready to TTC just yet. I don't mind condoms, in fact, my BF and I use them anyway b/c I am paranoid about 'what ifs' but I have pretty painful cramps when I'm not in the pill. On the pill I dont even take any pain meds at all. My cramps aren't outrageous like some people's...but for sure uncomfertable. Basically I would rather be on the Pill until ready to TTC (probably in another 4-5 yrs). But I don't want it to comprimise my fertility. I'm asked a couple physicans and CNMs and they all said the length of time you are on it should have no effect on fertility...most concieve within a few months of being off it. But I've heard otherwise from some people. I just wanted to see what you ladies think from experience and such.

Thank you!

I havent heard of it having a bad effect on your fertility. I got pregnant while ON the pill so it obviously didnt effect me at all.

I was on the pill for 10 years. I went off the pill and was pregnant two weeks later. Didn't effect me in the least.

Best wishes,

Didn't take long for me!!! In fact it only took one night of not using a condom after being off BCP for a month!

I was on BCP for about 7 years.

I have never heard of it affecting fertility. I was on BCP for a few years and when I went off of them I was pregnant a couple months later!
