Whilst it is recommended you wait at least one period after stopping the pill, you can get pregnant at any point coming off it. My family are excruciatingly fertile, and my mom went off the pill and up the spout with me in the same month.
My fiance's parents had a great deal of trouble having him, though whether that was down to his mother or father, we're not quite sure.
Basically, there's no telling, so if you want to get pregnant later rather than sooner, time to whip out the condoms.
I know people who have become pregnant within the month, and people it has taken almost a year for. But, like thay said, if you want to wait then condoms are a safe bet for a few months.
