Yes, you will: If you stop the pill you will ovulate. Why do you want to stop it? If you are having side effects such as nausea, make sure you are taking the pill at night. Nausea will resolve in a few weeks. Breast tenderness also resolves. It takes 3 months for the cycle to regulate. It takes 2 weeks to become effective so condom use is recommended the first 2 weeks.

You are at risk for a pregnancy. You could still use the Emergency Contraception-- Plan B or Ella to prevent pregnancy. You could continue the pack and if you do not get your period, take a urine pregnancy test.
