I've stopped taking Desogestrel. When will my cycle return

This answer was rated:

Hi,
I've stopped taking Desogestrel. When will my cycle return to normal? How long before I can get pregnant?

Hi, thank you for getting in touch. It varies between women how long until their period returns. Usually it's within 12 weeks but rarely can be longer but in the vast majority of cases 8-12 weeks until back to normal and able to conceive.

Does that mean can't get pregnant untill I've had a period

Yes your highest chance will be after the next period and chances of conceiving will be lower until then. Not impossible and chances increase the closer you get to the next period.
