In brief: Yes, possible

Many women do become pregnant the first cycle after discontinuing the oral contraceptive pill.
"mother nature" is persistent in propagating the species, so if it is not your intention to be pregnant please use contraception, and if you desire pregnancy "go for it".

In brief: Hard to tell

Usually ovulation takes places in the mid cycle, so roughly 2 weeks after your period.
When you say "going off pill", do you mean going off the sugar pills or off the true pills? Usually you would menstruate at the end of the sugar pills, so you would not normally menstruate then.
