Falling Pregnant

Hi, we want to start with a family. I've been off the pill for 2mnths, but now we've realised that we have to wait for at least 4mnths before we can start due to unplanned work related urgencies. Should I go back on the pill for 3mnths or just play it safe? What will be the best option for my body?

Many Thanks

Best to just use condoms.

If you really can't afford to fall pregnant right now then perhaps you should could consider going back on the pill for 4 months.
Using a condom is fine but not 100% safe.
It can take your body 3 months to regulate after the pill, but this is not a hard and fast rule as some women fall pregnant straight away whilst others can take a bit longer:)
