Starting and Ending Birth control is tricky. Birth controls screws with your hormones and your cycles. After birth control your body tries to regulate itself thus the sparatic cycles, heavy or light days or no cycle at all. The only way to be sure if you're pregnant is to take a pregnancy test after your fist missed period. If birth control is still in your system the test can still bring back an inaccurate result. So it may be best to go to the doctor if nothing happens after the next 7 days.
