  • If you mean the pill getting off of it can make you very fertile. In order to get pregnant I would have to go on the pill a few months and then come off. I almost always got pregnant before having a period (I got pregnant that way 6 times). So going off the pill can make you pregnant (if you have sex)!

  • Yes it can make you late. I hate BC. I hate how it screws with my cycles.

  • Could you be pregnant? My friend and I both got preg the first month we went off b/c. I was on it for more than 5 years. She was on it for 4.

  • There are many forms of birth control. You still haven't said if it's the pill. When you are on the pill you don't have cycles. The homones in the pill stops your "cycles". When you bleed it's not a period. You don't have periods on the pill. You aren't irregular on the pill. You may be talking about spotting or breakthrough bleeding.

  • Be safe and get a pg test. You can never be too safe.

  • When I say you don't have a period I mean you don't have a period like when off the pill. It is just bleeding from not getting the hormones. They didn't use to call it a period when you were on the pill.
