  • Probly not. You body takes at least a month to get back to it's normal self. Your periods will adjust back to thier natrual cycle, not the hormone induced cycle.

  • Only way to tell is with a test. You can get pregnant even if you're on the pill. I stopped taking mine and found out less than 1 month later I was pregnant.

  • Anything is possible but statistics show that most women have to get back on their regular cycles first. At least one full cycle and a period. Don't be anxious, that is a big conception inhibitor.

  • You can get pregnant when your on the pill. Thats happend to every woman in my family. And when you stop taking the pill you can get pregnant right away it all depends. Some pills put out higher hormone levels then others and it might take time for them to go back to what your body considers normal. But when most people stop taking the pill their cycle dosnt always stay the same as when they were on it. Wait a few more days then take a test to be sure.
