Hi!
The statistic is 85% of healthy normal couples will conceive within one year of "trying".  So, if you were my patient, I would tell you not to worry. In many cases birth control is protective--in other words, being on is healthier than being off.  If you still hadn't conceived after a year, I would start checking some hormone levels, and a sperm count, etc.
Good luck!
