I suppose it's possible. Anytime you start a new Birth Control you should always use a "backup method" of birth control to be safe. Take a home test and if it comes back negative but you still haven't started your period, then consider making an appointment with your ob/gyn for a blood test.

When did you start taking birth control and when was your period supposed to come?

Hi, Your question is: Is it hard to get pregnant after coming off birth control? Once you begin ovulating again naturally after coming off the pill your fertility level will be just the same as it was before you started birth control and will not effect your fertility. Once that you come off birth control, Yes you can get pregnant because it is still very easy to become pregnant.
