Dear Jena

The pill takes approximately 1 to 2 months for fertility to return to normal after stopping the pill. It is advisable when you are trying to fall pregnant that you take folic acid 5mg everyday. If you are under the age of 35 and are trying to conceive and haven’t fallen pregnant for more than a year then it would be advisable to start investigating then. If however you are over 35 years old then I would say wait 6 months to see if you will succeed in achieving a pregnancy on your own.
