No: No, you are still protected disputing the hormone free week. If you don't start a new pack, you will start to develop a follicle and then ovulate. The problem is, there may be a delay in that first ovulation. It is generally recommended that you have 2 normal periods after coming off the pill before you try to get pregnant.
