Ending Contranceptive
Hi Doc,

My hubby and I are wanting to expand our family. I have been on the Minerva contraceptive for the past 4 years. Can you please tell me how I can stop the pill. Do you just stop at the last pill on your pack before a period or is there another way to do it. I want to do it the right way. Also, how long after I stop taking the pill can I fall pregnant.

Please help.

You stop with the last active pill in the packet. Have a look at the Top 5 questions for information on your second question.

Best wishes
