Yes, it is possible: You are fertile as soon as you stop your birth control. If your cycles are regular you probably ovulate about 2 weeks after you started your last period. If you had sex around that time and have missed your period then perform a pg test. Also, women can have up to 6 months of no periods after stopping pills but not be pregnant.
