It differs: After stopping birth control pills, there is no set time that you can or can get pregnant. It's different for every woman. Some women can become pregnant the next month, while it may take much longer for others.

You should see regular periods, 28 days in length, if not you may not be ovulating, see your doctor sooner, if not having regular cycles
