Can I get Pregnant While on the Pill?
The pill is one of the most common forms of birth control. One of the reasons it is so popular is because it is so effective. 99% of the time, it will prevent pregnancy when it is taken correctly. The best way to make sure you don’t become pregnant while taking the pill is to take it every day at the same each day.
If you are ready to become pregnant, you should talk to your doctor to learn how long you should expect before your body begins ovulating after you stop taking the pill. Most of the time, this happens rather quickly after you stop, but this actually depends on the type of pill you are taking. Some take longer to leave a woman’s system than others.
To determine if you are ovulating again, you can use a basal thermometer or an ovulation predictor kit to track your ovulation cycle. These are both done on a daily basis and will help you know when you are able to conceive.
If you do not begin ovulating fairly quickly after you stop taking the pill, you may want to talk to your doctor. There are certain medications you can take to help you start ovulating again. This is especially true if you were taking the pill to treat a medical condition like PCOS.
