    Getting off of birth control

    I want to have the possibility of getting pregnant and having kids in the next 5 years and I have been on birth control for the last 7 years. My periods are light but painful and I just want my body to be natural and I don't want to miss my opportunity to have children with my husband. Any advice on when to get off of birth control or what I should expect or how long before anyone else got pregnant after they stopped birth control?

    Just stop taking it lol. It will take some time for your body to adjust but without taking hormones, your body will eventually return to normal.

    Always finish the pack. Don't just stop in the middle - it causes even more chaos in your cycle than stopping at the end of a pack. As for how long it takes - you can get pregnant on your very first cycle or it could take you up to a year. Just like for any other woman.

    Good luck.
