Hi, Raj,
Thanks for query,
As doctor insists for continuing Novelon , inspite of you are willing for a child, there must be some problem with your wife.
So insist your doctor for having reason continuing Novelon.
If require you may take another gynaec opinion.
Ok and bye.

Hello raj001raj,
Novelon is oral contraceptive pill(OCP). OCPs are usually prescribed for birth control but it also given to regularize irregular periods.
In your case your wife has taken OCPs for nearly 5 years. Now for getting pregnant she has to stop taking Novelon and her reproductive status would recover in 2 - 6 months time. Her periods will also become normal.
Hope I cleared your doubt
