How long it takes to get pregnant after taking Norethindrone?

How long would it take my wife to get pregnant after taking Norethindrone. She now has been off of the contraceptive for 2.5 months. She has had two regular periods (25 day cycle) and she is ovulating every 14 days (as determined from Clearblue easy digital ovulation tests)

the drug will not prevent u from getting pregnant from the day u stop using it.as u said the fact she is ovulating means the drug is no longer having any effects on her. try timed intercourse,that is having intercourse from day 10 to day 20 every alternate day if this fails for 3 or four months then u can get basic testing for both of u
