Once your wife stop taking her oral contraceptive, she will immediate have a chance of falling pregnant. Once she is pregnant, she should take folic acid, as this will ensure good development of the nervous system.

The supplement Folic Acid is VERY important and a pregnancy multi vitamin is essential.

It differs from person to person - some conceive immediately after leaving the pill (like myself) or for others it takes a few months. When trying to conceive, it can take up to a year and is considered normal for a healthy couple.
