Hi ladies. I'm finding it a bit hard to conceive after leaving my hormonal birth control pills end of July. I had my first normal period on the 23rd September and according to the period calculator I'm suppose to have my next period on the 21st October. When is the best time that we can try conceive??

Any help will really be appreciated soo much

Thank you for the reply :) I was on Yaz birth control for about a year or so (if not a bit less) but I left it at about end of July because it's been making me feel like I wasnt myself at all, and I'm feeling soo much better now feels like I'm back to normal again haha. Alright so it might take a little while for me to get back to normal with my hormones and I shouldnt worry too much for now? I had my first normal period on the 23rd September for about a week (it was very heavy) and apparently I am due for my period again tomorrow (accordingly to the period calendar)

I wonder of either of you ladies might know, about a week ago or so I had period like cramps for two weeks and sore nipples and feeling nauseas (almost like pregnancy symptoms) but now I feel fine again just have mild period cramps. Is it maybe possible that I was ovulating at that time and I could feel it somehow? It's the first time in nine years that I am off the birth controls (my son is nine years old) and I've been struggling to find the right birthcontrol for me but decided to give myself a break and hopefully try for another baby and then get myself fixed up?

I am with Raye on this. It takes time once you quit the birth control. Bu it also may depend on how long you were on it too as well as what you were on. Six months to a year or even a bit more is not unheard of for your body to get in gear with the program.

Normal ovulation is around 2 weeks before your period, but each person is different, and other things like stress can affect you from one month to the other. You should be having sex about every 2-3 days throughout the month for the best chances of conceiving. Some women take a long time after having been on BC pills. After about 6 months or so, if you still haven't gotten pregnant, then you and your man may want to be tested to see if you have issues with fertility.
