If I’m planning to have a baby, how soon after stopping birth control can I conceive?

Depending on the method, most women ovulate again between two weeks and three months after stopping their birth control method. As soon as you ovulate again, you can get pregnant. If this happens during your first cycle off your method, you may not have a period at all. Use a pregnancy test if you’ve had unprotected sex and your period hasn’t returned. Talk to a healthcare provider before you stop using your birth control method and if you have questions about pregnancy.
