General & Family Physician Dr. Mpiki Alma Ebu's  Response
even when you are on the pills, there is never a 100percent chance of no pregnancy, especially f you used to skip it. also, after stopping the pills, it might also take some time for your system to get back to normal and ovulation to be regular once again. So if you wish to stop the pills in order to get pregnant, then being pregnant after unprotected sex on Sunday will only be possible if you were to ovulate. however, if you are stopping the pills but do not want to get pregnant, then my advice to you will be to get an alternative means of protection, maybe condoms, while deciding on what to do. All the best
