Our expert says:
It is a myth to believe that most patients fall pregnant immediately after stopping the contraceptive pill. In general 70% of couples will conceive by the end of 9 months and close to 90% should have conceived at the end of 1 year, if there are no fertility problems. Therefore I would advise you to continue trying but to improve your chances I would recommend that you start monitoring ovulation each month by means of urinary ovulation testing kits e.g. Clearplan. The instructions on these testing kits are simple and easy to use and the sensitivity is extremely good.
