An implant, IUS or IUD can be taken out at any time you choose and your normal fertility will return quickly.
If you use the injection, your fertility may not return for several months after your last injection has worn off. It can sometimes take up to one year for your periods and fertility to get back to normal. So if you want to get pregnant sooner, this may not be the best method to choose.
You can stop taking or using other methods whenever you choose to and your normal fertility will return quickly.
Natural family planning can help you with planning a pregnancy as well as avoiding one.
Waiting at least one year after giving birth before getting pregnant again can help you have a healthier pregnancy and birth, reducing the risk of an early birth, a very small baby or a stillbirth. If you do get pregnant earlier, don’t worry – ask for advice from your doctor, nurse or midwife.
