What do you want?: Do you want birth control or do you want to get pregnant? The birth control choice depends on your contraceptive needs moving forward, not the birth control you used in the past. It takes a couple with no fertility related issues ~8 months to conceive. If you are trying to conceive and you have no success after 1 year i would seek professional advice on the options available. Don't worry yet.
