I never went on the pill after my daughter was born in October 2011.
We used condoms until August 2012. We got our BFP on November 16th 2012. So, August 2012- October 2012 Cycles. 2 Cycles.
First time: 1. Got pregnant the first cycle off.
Second time: 3, but I am still nursing which surely impacted it more than the pill.
Go-Round #1: Went off BC after 10 years on them. Tried for two years. An m/c and a c/p that both ended before 5 weeks. Went back on them in 2010 when my ex husband and I divorced.
Go-Round #2: Went off BC this July after 2 years on because they were making me sick. Used condoms and were not TTC at all. Got pregnant after 3 months. Surprise!
B born 7/15/13, C born 3/2/15, #3 on the way May '17
I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

I went off of BCP in July and was pregnant in September. I ovulated the first cycle, a ovulated 2nd, and ovulated and got pregnant 3rd. If you're not charting, you should start now so you know what's going on. Sme ppl think they ovulated and don't.
i recommend the book Taking Charge of your Fertility. It's what I used.
SURPRISE! BFP: 12/2014 - EDD: 8/13/15
We made plans and God laughed
DS: BFP: 9/30/12 - EDD: 6/9/13
Radley Quinn was fashionably late via induction on 6/17/13
With DD I stopped in June. We got pregnant the first month we actually tried which was 6 months later.
With # 2 (m/c) I stopped in July and got a BFP in Sept.
ETA - I was on birth control for 15 years.
I'd assumed that since I'm older (36) and most of my friends had a hard time of it that I'd have to wait awhile, but I took my last active pill mid-September and ovulated exactly 14 days later and we got pregnant right off the bat. Wasn't expecting that, but I'll take it!
My OB said that sometimes you have a better chance of conceiving immediately after you quit because your progesterone is still high from the BCP.
I'd been on the pill since I was about 20 with just a few short (month or two long) breaks when I moved or switched doctors.
