When to stop using contraceptives
Good day,

I am currently on Minerva and my husband and myself have decided that it is time to start a family.

At which part of my cycle should I stop the contraceptives? e.g. after period, before period, anytime?

I have PCOS but we would like to try without fertility first.

You should stop at the end of a pack, i.e when you reach the inactive pills and have a period.
