Am I fertile?
I stopped taking my birth control approximately 3 months ago and am trying to conceive.  Ive taken some form of hormonal birth control substance for 8 years.  Does the amount of time that you use contraceptives prolong the time it takes to conceive?

HI!
IF you were my patient, I would advise you that the answer to your question is "No".  Often taking pills actually protects your fertility.  It commonly takes up to a year to conceive, so don't feel like you are abnormal!
Good luck!
