Does It Take Longer Than A Year To Get Pregnant After Years Of Birth Control Use

How long does it take to get pregnant after a year of Depo-Provera shot and then a year of birthcontrol pills?
Not long: It can take up to 8 months for the Depo to get out of your system, so by doing the pill for a year, it should be out of your system. The pill is out of your system quickly, but I usually recommend a couple of normal periods before you start trying. If everything works right, though, there is only a 25% chance if conceiving each month. ...Read more

I've been taking trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) for a year now. Is it safe to continue to take them for a long period of time since it stops ovulation? Is it healthy?
It is safe to take: It is safe to take your oral contraceptive for as long as you don't wish to be pregnant.

If my husband is taking a high dose of vitamin a for around 6 months for acne, how long do we have to wait before trying to get pregnant?
You should be fine: It's the mother that shouldn't take vitamin a analogues for acne. I also hope that your husband isn't self-medication with store-bought vitamin a; this is dangerous. A dermatologist can offer Accutane which will clear him up; it's related to vitamin a. Double-check with your dermagologist, but the scare stories seem to be generated by tort lawyers. ...Read more
I have been on the same birth control for 10 years. Does that make it less effective and a higher chance for me to get pregnant?
How likely is it for me to get pregnant with precum if i didn't take my birth control for a week straight... & missed pills throughout the month?
More than if didn't: Precum contains sperm; all you need is one to get pregnant. That's why withdrawal method doesn't work. Besides, we're clueless so don't trust us to withdraw in time. Instead, trust birth control pill/shot (but only if used regularly) & condoms (each & every time!). More likely to get pregnant if you don't take pills as directed. Skipping pills increases risk. Consider pills+condoms 2 prevent stds. ...Read more

Since then they have reduced some of the doses of the hormones and they must be taken at the same time every day to keep the levels to prevent pregnancy.
