Hi, I've been on birth control pills for around 6 months. I've had two periods since last intercourse. Is it possible still that I'm pregnant?

Very unlikely. If you have been taking your oral contraceptives as directed and on time every day, the chance of pregnancy is very small. If your bleeding is irregular because of irregular use of the pill, I would get a home pregnancy test to settle the question and use a second form of contraception until your next pack of pills.
