Ovulation could return as early as the next menstrual cycle after you stop taking birth control pills, although regular cycles (every 24 to 32 days) could be delayed for a few months. Once your ovulatory cycle does return, your chances of  getting pregnant are about 20% per month. If regular cycles don’t return within six months after you stop taking birth control, talk with your doctor.
