In Feburary my husband and I decided we wanted to start trying for a baby but ever since i had my first one my periods have been irregular so he suggested I take soemthing to start my period then take birth control for three months and when I was ready to have a baby stop the birth control and start trying. I didnt really read up on it so I stopped in the middle of my fourth month of being on the pill. We had sex 3 days in a row and on the fourth day I started bleeding. Is it still possible to get pregnant this month or will I have to wait?

I was ubder the care of my regular obgyn for the irregular periods which is who told me to start trying whenever we were ready after the 3 months of birth control. I have no other health problems and in my eary 20s. My daughter is 20 months now. Sorry I see where the confusion is my dr. Is who I was talking about my question got split up. Does this help

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question. Any time you have sex without birth control, there is a chance you could get pregnant. There are varying opinions about how long you should wait following taking birth control to try and have children. The information my OB/GYN gave me was to wait until you have a full normal cycle. But as I said, I bet you'd be a handful of different answers from different doctors.
Are you under the care of a doctor for your irregular periods? Is your husband a doctor? Do you have any other conditions? How long has it been since you had your first child and have been having irregular periods? I think I may be a little confused by the information you provided,so if my questions don't make sense, please excuse me. If I'm missing something here, let me know.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
