I just stopped taking birth control, could I be pregnant?
Q: I was on birth control, but recently stopped. I missed my period. Could I be pregnant?
A: If someone is taking the birth control pill daily, it is unlikely that she is pregnant but if she missed even one day, she might be. Also, some women don't get their periods exactly on time when going off the pill. If she is using another form of birth control, she might well be pregnant.
