Am I ovulating again if I am off birth control pills and I am having my period regularly?

The general consensus is that if you are menstruating regularly, you are presumably ovulating. But this is not absolutely conclusive. Subtle abnormalities can and do occur within cycles. Over-the-counter testing with ovulation predictor kits can be used to verify that the luteinizing hormone, LH has surged, signalling that ovulation has occurred.

It is a safe bet to wait anywhere from 3-6 months after stopping your birth control pills to consider becoming pregnant. This gives your body a chance to normalise your cycles and begin to ovulate on a regular basis.

If you are in doubt, consult a doctor. Look for one that specialises in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
