After being on birth control for 5 years, are my chances of having a baby in the future lowered?


Nope – that’s a myth we hear a lot. Birth control doesn’t change your ability to get pregnant once you stop using it. But other factors, like your age and your health in general, can affect your ability to get pregnant.

When you’re ready to get pregnant, take some time to speak with a doctor or nurse about your plan so they can talk with you about what to expect and how to stay healthy before and during pregnancy.
