Conception can occur at any time after you stop taking the pill. Tho for some women, they complain that they have been off bc for months with no luck.
The best time to start trying is while your ovulating. This process begins about 14 days after the first day of your last period.
So for you, i would start thinking about it around the 10th of this month.
There are just a few days in there when you can conceive, so do it everyday for about 5 days, (what a way to go, hehe)
Even if you were to have intercourse on the 8th or 9th of the month, you still may get lucky. Sperm can survive in a women for a few days after ejaculation, and those days would bring you into ovulation.
So...i would say, block off a week on your calender and tell hubby to come straight home from work cuz he's in for a ride. I'm joking, sort of ;-) Good luck !


It's safe to get pregnant the day after you stop the pill. Once you stop the pill the hormones are gone. There are some women who even get pregnant while on the pill, and there are no studies showing that there is an increased risk to the fetus. The birth control pill works by preventing ovulation. Once you stop taking the pill, the hormones are out of your body quickly, usually within a couple of days. When the hormones are gone your body needs to start again on its own to function. That mean it will start producing follicles again, which eventually lead you to ovulate. Everybody acts differently, some may take a couple of weeks to ovulate, other may take some months, but in general your body should be in "normal mode" within less than two to three months after stopping the pill. So if you now ovulate normally, that means your body is back to its normal rhythm.
