Doctor

A:   After the use of a birth control pill, it usually takes 6-8 months for the periods to become regular. In the meanwhile you can try out these advice to increase your chances of pregnancy :
1. A good and healthy balanced diet with lots of exercise.
2. Identify the period when you ovulate. For example in a 28 day cycle, the ovulation usually takes place on the 14th day, therefor any sexual activity 3 days before and after the ovulation would significantly increase your chances of conceiving. Also you may use an ovulation kit predictor.
Geritol is a multivitamin and there has been no study that it increases the chances of pregnancy. I hope this information helps you, take care.
