I am 23 years old! I have been on sprintec birth control for almost a year. I am going to college to get my R.N. in Nursing :) but I wanted to get off my birth control and stop taking it. I want to have a baby soon when I get close to finishing school. How long will it take for my birth control to wear off?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to stop your birth control about 3 months before you want to start trying for a baby.  Actually, the birth control will be out of your system within a few weeks, but it can take awhile for your normal cycle to return. Don't worry and DO be prepared just in case the birth control wears off sooner!
Good luck!
