Birth Control pills fool the body into acting as if it's pregnant. Birth control pills, come in two forms: a combination of two synthetic hormones, estrogen and progestin; and, the minipill, which consists solely of progestin. The combination pill prevents ovulation by suppressing the natural hormones in the body that would stimulate the ovary to release an egg. By taking this estrogen throughout the month, you insure that no egg will be developed or released for that cycle. Progestin thickens the cervical mucus, hindering the movement of sperm. Progestin also prevents the uterus's lining from developing normally; so, if an egg were fertilized, implantation is unlikely. The minipills, which contain no estrogen, inhibit the egg's ability to travel through the fallopian tubes, alter the cervical mucus to block sperm, partially suppress the sperm's ability to unite with an egg, and partially inhibit implantation in the uterine wall. For maximum effectiveness, you need to take the pills as prescribed. Once you stop taking them, the body reverts back to its "normal rythm" and will start to ovulate normally again which means you can become pregnant. Depending on the pill you were taking it is possible that you have already ovulated. This means that if you are not using an alternative form of birth control, you need to start now. Hi, Realistically you can become pregnant while on the pill because its only 98% effective, but this is a rare occurance but not that rare or uncommon as it once was. The pill will remain in your system for 3 months. But you can conceive a few days or a few months or even a few years after coming off the pill. It really depends on your body, how fertile you are and how quickly you begin ovulating naturally again. Hello, You can become pregnant as soon as the day after stopping BCP. It really depends on how quickly the hormones decrease in your system and how fertile you are or whether you experience early ovulation.
