Do you believe long term use of birth control pills can affect your ability to conceive or is it just age?

Is there a possibility that I have difficulty to conceive from taking birth control pills?

Usually not. Taking birth control pills will not change your fertility once you stop them. You'll remain as fertile as before & if you've never had children, this is still unknown.

Can there be a possibility that I have difficulty to conceive after taking birth control pills?

No. Many years ago, doctors believed that the birth control pill might delay the return of ovulation, but the low-dose pills that are prescribed today do not delay ovulation after being stopped.

Easy on & off. Birth control pills have a very short effect and are out of your system in days. So fertility returns right away.

D you still have a chance to conceive whien you have used birth control pills for the past 6 months?

Can u conceive without having a period? I'm currently taking birth control pills to help gain my period back since it has been missing for 6 months...

See details. You should not be taking birth control pills to help gain your period back. If you missed your menstrual cycle for 6 months, you need to have a thorough history, physical, and hormonal testing at the very least. There might be a significant abnormality that will prevent you from conceiving. Without a proper evaluation, there's no way to determine this. See your gynecologist.
Unlikely. Obviously on the BC pills you cannot conceive. And if you go off the pill and stop getting periods that usually means you are not ovulating. There is no way to get pregnant without ovulating. If that's the case then you should see an infertility specialist who can figure out why you're not ovulating and give medication to help with that.

Does sperm potency effect the efficiency of birth control pills? My boyfriend is 25 and his first child was conceived on BC w/ his ex so I am curious.

Probably not. Because birth control pills prevent ovulation, which in turn prevents pregnancy. More likely, the pill failed to prevent ovulation in the woman.
