In brief: No

While birth control pills sometimes can delay your cycles and the return of fertility, it does not cause infertility.
In some situations the pills may actually help you get pregnant just after you stop them. If you have been trying to get pregnant for a year or your cycles are regular, it is time to seek out help.

In brief: BIrth

Birth control using hormone therapy can affect a woman's regular mentral cycle.
Some women experience irregulality in their mentral cycles after stopping the birth control pill. When your cycle returns to normal, a woman's ability to concieve will typically resume as well. It will be important to ask your doctor or pharmacist about whether or not the birth control you are taking has a history of affecting a woman's cycle or fertility. Also, talk to your doctor about your desire to concieve. Many factors can contribute to difficulty getting pregant such as age and health status. Your doctor can make recommendations such as healthy lifestyle changes, prenatal care/vitamins and strategies for determining prime fertile times (ovulation time) for getting pregnant. Best of luck!
