User :   I began taking birth control at the very end of February. The last time I had sex was the March 2nd. I went off birth control after one cycle because I am not sexually active anymore. I had my period while on the birth control at the end of March. It is now the end of April and I have not yet gotten my period. I was just wondering if there is any possibility that I am pregnant.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
User :   Can you see the question I sent above? Or should I send it again?
Doctor :   Birth pills are known to cause such disturbances.
Doctor :   Your symptom probably may be due to the drugs.
User :   Even if I was only on the pill for one month?
Doctor :   These effects are particularly common if you are irregular with the drugs.
User :   So I shouldn't worry about being pregnant?
Doctor :   If you have not been active sexually after stopping the pills, then chances of pregnancy is less.
User :   Okay, thank you very much!
