Thanks for your query.
Normally return to fertility after stopping pill use occurs within 1 - 2 months, however there is a condition called post pill amenorrhoea, where you might not get regular periods for upto 6 months.
There is no way to predict this.
Pills would not thin the lining of the uterus once you stop using them.
take care.
