conception after pill.....
We've decided to conceive. How do i stop taking the Pill. Is there a specific day in the cycle one should do this, or can it be done on any day?Should one go on some other medication to get you "off" the pill. Thanks.

You stop when you get to the placebo pills. There is no need for any other medication. You should take folate while trying to conceive though.
