Yes, but...: It depends on when you stopped your oral contraceptive and when the unprotected sex occurred This might also be withdrawal bleeding from stopping the pill in mid pack. You can do a pregnancy test, but if the sex was recent try Plan B first. Your initial period may become irregular with the use of Plan B.
