Birth Control Pills

Taking birth control pills doesn’t cause infertility.

Taking birth control pills suppresses ovulation, but it does not damage the ovaries, or cause infertility. Some doctors suggest that women wait a few months after going off birth control pills for their cycles to return to normal before trying to become pregnant. Women may think that taking birth control pills has caused them to become infertile when in reality, their fertility may have begun to decline at this point.

    Wow, I had no idea! I’ve always heard that being on birth control pills for too long will make it hard to become pregnant so I’m relieved to hear that birth control pills themselves don’t cause infertility.
