Dear Worried

Thank you for visiting

After stopping the oral contraceptive, it can take up to one year to fall pregnant. Eltroxin will not lessen your chance to fall pregnant. I also recommend that your husband has a sperm count done, in order to determine if everything is in order on his side. You can monitor your menstruational cycle and remember that you are most fertile twelve to fourteen days after menstruation.

Kind regards
