Birth Control

Jan 01, 1970
If you decided to stop taking the birth control pill, your menstrual cycle can resume right after that. Your next period may start after four or six weeks. But sometimes women experience so-called post-pill amenorrhea. It may take about three months after you discontinue using the pill for your periods to resume.

You can get pregnant right after your ovulations returns to normal, which may occur about two weeks after you discontinued using the pill, meaning that you have all chances to get pregnant in the first month after discontinuing the Pill. If you don't have periods within three months after you've stopped using the birth control pills, you can be pregnant. Birth control pills do not influence the results of pregnancy tests as pregnancy test measure the pregnancy-specific hormone (HCG), while the birth control pills do not affect this hormone.
