Counseling : It would be best if you scheduled an appointment with an OB/GYN for preconception counseling. Be certain your vaccinations are up-to-date and you are living a healthy lifestyle.

Basics: The cited average wait for a desired pregnancy is 6 mo with a range from weeks to 1 yr. After you stop your BC pills your system usually returns to your baseline fertility in a month. You don't need to " clean out" your system. If menses return to your normal pattern without the pill assume you are ovulating. Whether both you & your partner are fertile is another issue.
