I hope this is the right folder! :)
I've been on the BC pill since I was 17 - so 12 years (I can't even believe that!). I've heard from random sources that being on the pill can affect your fertility, and the longer you're on it the worse it can get. Now, I'm not sure how true this is - maybe for the super high dose pills that came out in the 60's or something, or maybe it's still true?
Also, how far in advance of TTC should you go off the BCP? I've heard that you should use a backup method for a while after going off the pill for a few months to prevent complications - does anyone have any info on that? Does it really matter these days with low dose pills?
Any light anyone can shed on these for me would be appreciated!
