HOW LONG????
Hi Doc

I have been on the injection for about a year and a half, and on the pill for the last 6 months. I had very irregular periods. I am not taking the pill since mid January, and want to fall pregnant. How long will it take? I know it depends from person to person, but for the last two weeks I have very tender breasts and mood swings. Can it be? I did not have my periods either, only a brownish discharge. Kindly advise !!

It can take up to a year for a normal couple to conceive. If your period is late, check a pregnancy test.
