Welcome to ehealthforum.
You can get pregnant immediately in your next cycle after stopping with birth control use. Sometimes it need not be necessary to have a period in between stopping birth control and getting pregnant. The return of normal fertility depends on how quickly your body gets readjusted back to normal and also on duration of birth control use. Ovulation tests determine if you have had ovulation or egg release from ovary, they do not detect pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Visit your gynecologist for blood HCG level test and examination to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
