In brief: No need to

You can start taking your Folic Acid 400 mcg to 1 mg and a prenatal vitamin now.
There is no need to wait, you can just start trying to conceive. Most women ovulate within a few weeks of stopping the pill. Some women will not ovulate for a few months.

In brief: Right away

You can start trying immediately.
Just be aware of the slightly increased risk of multiples for the first month after discontinuing the pill. This risk goes back to baseline starting with the second month.
