What are my chances of getting pregnant after discontinuing birth control pills? How long does it take? Can it be possible to get pregnant within a few weeks of discontinuing BC’s in the middle of the pack?

  • It is possible to get pregnant after you discontinue your birth control pills. It may be as high as a 20-30% chance on your first cycle after the pills, assuming you didn’t have any problems with skipping periods prior to going on the pill. In fact, you can get pregnant on your BCP’s but the chances are very low. Once you stop the pills your cycle will begin and allow you to continue a regular cycle. About 60% of women get pregnant within 6 months of trying and 80% within one year.
