Wait 3 months before falling pregnant?
I've been on the pill for 7 years and we would like to start with a family.
Do I need to wait 3 months before falling pregnant? (Time for my body to function normal after the pill) Or can we immediate start "practising"?

Theoretically, people say that you should allow 3 months for the Pill to clear out of your system. Practically, it doesn't seem to make a difference. Few women fall pregnant in the first three months anyway and those who do don't seem to have any problems.
