im on birth control to keep from getting ovarian cysts and i was wondering if its safe to stop the birthcontrol to try and have a baby?

Women who have PCOS often

Women who have PCOS often find that in the next few months after stopping the pill, they are most likely to get pregnant. In fact, that happened to me. However, don't make the decision on your own - discuss it with the medical provider who prescribed the pill. Ovarian cysts can do damage, and you want to make sure this is the right step for you.
