Falling pregnant while being on the pill

Is it true that one would find it difficult to fall pregnant if they have been on the pill for a long time, cos i know of people who have been on the pill for 5 years and now that they have come of it cannot fall pregnant and they have been trying for 7 months now.

The Pill is out of your system in 3 months and has no long term effect on fertility.

It can take 6 - 12 mths for your friend to concieve. Only once you have tried for a year without any luck can you say there is a problem. There could be many reason for this. A friend of myne used the pill for almost 8 yrs and she concieved within the 2nd mth of stopping the pil. It is diffrent from person to person
