Post subject: How long do I have to wait?
I came off the pill in Nov 07. I had regular periods before going on the pill. I have 2 lovely kidies - 18mths apart so this time we wanted it to be a little longer in between time. Both weren't planned but very much wanted and loved! Sooooo ... from what I have read do I have to wait till my cycle is "regular" as in 28 days ...??? I have a 21-22 cycle. Any advice? Thanks

Hiya.I came off the pill in december but my cycles haven't settled down completely yet.
Ideally you should wait,as if your periods/cycles are irregular and you were to fall pregnant,it would be hard to work out the due date and also,it can be harder to conceive after coming off it.
You don't have to wait though,doctors only advise that you wait for one month or until you have a normal cycle but it is completely your choice.It may be harder for you to work out when you are ovulating though.
