Want to fall pregnant!!
Hi there, i was on the pill for 10 years. I went off it for about 3 months now. I desperately want to fall pregnant, but scared that i cant. How long will it take for me to fall pregnant? I might be pregnant now because after stopping with the pill I had my 2 periods as normal but not this month. I am 6 days overdue. I think I might have some symptoms like nausea, headaches and fatigue and disiness and swollen belly. I did a test 3 days ago but it was negative. Please help!!!

Most women do not fall pegnant in the first 3 months after stopping the Pill. Thereafter your chances are the same as if you had not been on the Pill. You could do a blood pregnancy test to be sure that you are not pregnant, but it is still too early to worry about not being able to conceive.
