Hi ladies! I'm new (recommended by a friend) and my husband and I are trying to conceive our first child. I've been off birth control for almost 2 weeks now. A couples days after I stopped taking my pills I had a period. (When I got my periods on BC I had them the last week of active pills and not when I was taking the sugar pills). So I had my last period on BC then a week later after I stopped taking my pills had another period. Is this normal? I know everyone is different but what is the average time between going off BC and conceiving? I'm a little impatient.

The "average" time varies from woman to woman. i would say give yourself a few months and see how regular your periods are. In the meantime, enjoy all that comes with trying to make that baby wink1.gif
