Only your body knows: When it is going to be ready. The good news is you are young and assuming you have no other medical problems you are likely to be very fertile. The question will be when are you ovulating. Have you had regular cycles in the past? Did you use the pill prior? Why did you start the pill, only as birth control? So if you have had regular cycles before, you should be pregnant w/in 10 months. Take a PNV
