I was on birth control for 7 almost 8 years and been off for 3 years. Would this make it harder to get pregnant?

Hi Kerri, this should not affect your fertility, but you can ask your doctor if you're concerned.

If you've been off it for three years, it's been out of your system a long, long time and should have no affect on your fertility. I was on the pill for eleven years before stopping to conceive my daughter and had no problems. But by all means, if you're concerned about your fertility, ask the doc.
