When you stop taking birth control after taking it for a year will it affect your pregnancy in the long run?

I do not believe this is true. For some people it can be harder to get pregnant at first. It can take a few months for the pill to "get out of your system." But that isn't true for eveyrone. I personally know a girl that got pregnant one day after she stopped taking the pill. This is something you should call a doctor and get more information on. But I was on the pill for about 3 years and I have a perfectly healthy baby boy who is now 2.

I have actually been told & read that women who have taken the pill for a long period of time - generally have a better chance of getting pregnant sooner - after coming off the pill. Most doctors don't even say you need to wait to try.

Birth control pills have no effect on pregnancy tests.

No it can't as long as you are taking your birth control pills as instructed and not missing any. Marcy

Taking the birth control pill lowers the risk of pregnancy. Not taking the birth control pill does not lower the risk of pregnancy. You are more likely to get pregnant when you are not taking the birth control pill.

If you suspect pregnancy has occurred when taking birth control, you need to have the pregnancy confirmed by your Doctor. If you indeed are pregnant, you must stop taking birth control as it can harm the unborn child.
