Our expert says:
If taken correctly the oral contraceptive pill has a failure rate of 1:1000 that is 0.1%. In the fast majority of cases there are no short term or long-term side effects particularly regarding return to fertility. In some cases the OCP may even be used by fertility doctors to regulate and control the menstrual cycle prior to fertility treatment. Therefore provided you take your pill reliably there should be no reason to be overly concerned.
