Made the decision

HI. My husband and I have been together for 4 years and married for 1. We decided to leave the birth control pills and try and conceive. I am a bit unsure regarding how the cycle works? I drink my 21 pills normally and then 4 days after the last active pill (on day 25 - 28), I usually start my periods which then lasts a further 4 days. So am I on a 25 day cycle then?

Has anyone else had experience of being pregnant after long periods of user the pill? I read so many bad things on the internet of women struggling to get pregnant after going off the pill.
