I've been on birth control pills for about 8.5 years, but my husband and I are finally ready to start a family. I took my last "real" pill on Nov. 26 and my last placebo pill on Dec. 3. Do we need to wait a certain amount of time to let the hormones get out of my system before trying to conceive?

Thanks for the query.     

Post contraceptive pill, one can plan pregnancy as per need and desire.

It is always better to wait for one cycle before trying to conceive.

If You were on a low dose "progesterone only" pill, you can go ahead with your plan of conceiving without delay.
