We have traditionally recommended
waiting for a month or two after completing birth control
pills to let the lining of the uterus become a little bit more
thickened, to accept a pregnancy.
I will be honest with you, there's not a lot of good data
out there about that traditional response.
Patients are often worried that birth control pills will
keep them from getting pregnant months
after that they have come off of them,
and that just is not the case.
We all know in practice that even
a missed pill or two in the middle of a cycle
can result in a pregnancy.
