Depends: It depends on what is being tested. Your LH, FSH, Progesterone and Estradiol levels would be abnormal.

Unlikely: Gynecologists usually would not do specific tests that would tell if you are taking birth control pills. After stopping birth control pills, the hormones will usually be out of your system in less than 1 week.
