May take a while: The pill works by tricking your body into thinking you are pregnant.That prevents egg release and saves them for later. After the pill hormone wears off( days to week+) your body will start egg release again. You will have regular cycles.The average quoted time to desired pregnancy is 6m with a range from weeks to a year.
