after taking althea pills

i am 28 yrs. old and i wanna know why i can get pregnant since i stopped taking althea for almost 2 years. ## Hi fiona, Sorry to hear about your complications with pregnancy. I don't know whether contraceptive pills like this have any long term effects that people just aren't aware of in relation to getting pregnant.

It sounds to me like your best bet would be to check in with a knowledgeable gynecologist or doctor who can offer more advice through an in-person consultation. After understanding the cause of the infertility, treatment options may just require a simple hormonal adjustment to get y... ...

If you're not pregnant, the delay in your period could be caused by any one of many different factors, from taking the Althea to your just being worried about it and stressing... ...
