You cannot plan a pregnancy to the exact month. You may fall pregnant immediately after stopping the Pill or it may take a year. If you do not want to be have the baby before November , you should not stop the Pill till February.

Best wishes

Falling pregnant is not something that you can plan to the day or when it should happen. It is a gift from God which he will give you when you are ready. I have been on the pill for over 7 years and fell pregnant 2 months after leaving the pill but that is my case, as TTC said, she has been trying to fall pregnant for 3 years. It just depends on how fertile you are as well as your husbands sperm.

Unfortunatley, you just have to leave the pill and when it happens you will know, there is no way of putting a specific time period on something this special.

Good Luck!

I am no expert, but from what I heard from friends and family is that if it is your first pregnancy you will fall almost immediately pregnant when you stop taking the pill. If it is your second pregnancy, it takes much longer to get pregnant.
