Should I wait any amount of time after getting off the pill to try to get pregnant?

She recently had unprotected sex. She DOESN'T want to get pregnant. Any tips on avoiding getting pregnant? How to know? Did NOT take Plan B pill.

She recently had unprotected sex. She DOESN'T want to get pregnant. Any tips on avoiding getting pregnant? How to know? Did NOT take Plan B pill.

Sure, with willpower: It's great that a teen does not want to get pregnant. Because the whole point of sex (in nature) is to make babies, the way to not get pregnant is to not have sex. So, she must use her brain and willpower, to promise herself that she won't have sex again until... probably after the wedding. For yesterday's problem, she must tell her doctor how many days after sex it is, so her Dr. can advise her. ...Read more

No Chance: No chance. Here is how i operate with my patients. I try to work as their partner.

To get pregnant a female must be ovulating and not on birth control. You are on birth control. You took plan b. ...Read more

It should not: Most women return to fertility within a few months after stopping birth control pills. Once your cycles are regular off the pills then you should be able to get pregnant during one of your ovulation periods. Make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin now to prevent neural tube defects in your baby. ...Read more

I'm 18 years old I have taken contraceptive pill 3 times, will this effect my ovaries or will i get low chance in getting pregnant?

Unanswerable: Unfortunately I am not sure what you are really asking. If you are taking your birth control as prescribed you can assume you are protected from pregnancy after the first month on the pills. The birth control does affect your cycles and ovulation. But, you could still get pregnant after only taking three of the pills in the pak. ...Read more
