Hi there
I have been on Triphasil for 9 years, since i was 16, i have been off it now for about 2 weeks. Can you tell me if you are very fertile after being on the pill so long, or will it take a while to fall pregnant? Please advise. Thank you

Dear Clueless
One can become fertile quickly after stopping the contraceptive pill, within a month or three, unlike the progesterone injection which has a long period before ovulation starts again.
