QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I stopped taking my pills on Feb. 27th. How long would it take me to ovulate.

I am really excited and want this to happen asap. Thanks for the help!

ANSWER

Women vary *tremendously* in how long it takes to ovulate when they come off the pill. Some do so the very day they don't start a new pill pack; others can take up to two years.

Meanwhile, have a really good time!!!! and try not to stress--it will happen at exactly the right time.
