Thanks for the query.

After stopping the birth control pills it will take some time for regularization of the periods.
That may be the cause for your irregular periods.
The time taken for the regularization of the periods will differ from person to person and the same applies to the recurrence of ovulation.
So just by delay in periods we cannot confirm the pregnancy.
You once go for urine test for pregnancy to detect the possibility.
