Probably about 3 months before you plan to have a pregnancy, but remember that some women fall pregnant straight away. Others can take up to a year.

Best wishes

If i were you i' d go off the pill now and start using condoms as protection. It could take up to 1 year for your body to adjust from not being on the pill.
