Fertility after the Pill

The Pill and Fertility: Becoming Pregnant After The Pill

The advent of the birth control pill ushered in the sexual revolution of the 60s and 70s - and to this day, the pill is a leading method in keeping fertility "in check" until the time is right to conceive a baby.

The pill functions by affecting female hormonal balance - inhibiting ovulation (the release of the ovum or egg by the ovarian follicle. By suppressing ovulation, no ovum or egg is available for fertilization.

There are three primary hormones responsible for regulating fertility and either supporting or hindering conception (luteinizing hormone, estrogen and progesterone). These female hormones facilitate ovulation - or they can contribute to the contraceptive aspect of the pill in suppressing ovulation. In taking the pill daily, you are providing your body with constant flow of estrogen and progesterone and your body is "tricked" into believing you are pregnant. In effect, when you take the pill, your hormone levels suggest a condition of pregnancy. The result: Your body decreases the production of hormones like LH that are necessary to the maturation of the egg and ovulation. Without LH, ovulation will not occur. (You may recognize LH as the hormone detected by ovulation tests).

The following are some key questions that women who are looking to conceive in the future may ask.

First, does taking the pill impact fertility in the future?

The good news is that the pill has not be shown to decrease fertility (though it may take some time after you discontinue the pill for hormones levels to regulate). This can be a source of frustration for women who want to become pregnant immediatley after they stop taking the pill!

How long does it take for fertility to return after I go off of the pill?

If you are planning a pregnancy, it is not unusual for the body to take 3 months to get "synchronized" after going off the pill. In rare instances, it may take as long as 6 months. FertilAid for Women is a product commonly used by women coming off the pill to help restore optimal reproductive hormonal balance quickly.

How will I know if I don't ovulate after I go off of the pill?

If you do not get regular periods after 6 months of being off the pill, you are probably not ovulating normally and should see a doctor. Other easy ways to determine if you are ovulating include ovulation predictor testing, basal body temperature monitoring, and checking various body signs.

What can I do to become fertile after taking the pill?

The key is good health, a sound, sensible diet, exercise and reading up on fertility charting and how to predict ovulation, your most fertile time of the month. Some fertility supplements like FertilAid can also assist.

I am here to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 6 years with 3 good lovely kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had a fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce… I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn’t want to loose her but everything just didn’t work out… she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell casterDr. MAXI OWOLABI who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and cast a love spell on her. Within 3 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our fourth child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there needs it… You can email him at: owolabilovespell@hotmail.com

Some herbal sex pills are marketed as a natural alternative to well-known drugs for ED. Such sex pills promise you harder erections on demand without giving any side effects to your body. Sounds great, does not it? Let's find out whether this is true or just a marketing gimmick. All known chemical drugs for ED are inhibitors of phosphodiesterase type 5. This means their working mechanism is based on increasing blood flow to the penis. Phosphodiesterase-5 is a compound that is responsible for decrease in the amount of blood in the penis. So, by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type 5, ED drugs promote higher content of blood in the penis. As you can see, to experience more powerful erections, you need to have an increased amount of blood in your penis. Can natural sex pills do this?

Hello, i have had unprotected sex a lot for the last month, i am due for my next period and am having sharp pains in my lower belly and my nipples are very sore, is it possible i am pregnant?

I've been on the microgynon pill for 5 or more years not, just this month me and my husband had unprotected sex, he never came but I worry I may still get pregnant. the late time we had safe sex and the condom broke, I went right away to my nurse to get a morning after, only to find when she ask how long I had been on the pill she said I was be fine. Im a little confused as I know you can get pregnant on the pill, but I want to know why the nurse will not give me a morning after pill.

Please can some one explain why??

My partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; mokospellcaster@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that she we either conceive in January 2013 or February 2013,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Moko, Because he predictions put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done.
