Contreception pill

Patient

Q: I am worried as i have been taking my pill non stop for nearly 3years, will this stop my chances of having children?

Doctor

A:   Contraceptives don’t cause infertility after stopping them, you might probably have difficulty getting pregnant in the following cycles until your body regulates and start producing its own natural hormones again. However, most women get pregnant immediately after stopping their contraceptive pills.
