Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were ‘off’ the birth control pills (missed taking more than 2 pills) then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out due to pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid (as you no longer remain protected after missing more than 2 pills or after ‘coming off the pill’). Your current symptoms (fatigue, lightheadedness, headaches, sickness) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination (to look for signs of pregnancy changes in body) and getting a blood HCG test done (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Do not start with your next pill pack if you suspect to be pregnant.
Take care.
