your question is gynae doc' s most popular asked question and this is her answer posted on " Gynae Doc' s Top 5 Questions"  :
Commonly, after stopping the oral contraceptive, there is a period of time which the body needs to adjust to its own cycle again. In this time, periods may be irregular or may not come at all. It often takes three months for the cycle to regularise. Most women do not fall pregnant in this time, though there are, of course, instances where pregnancy does occur. If you have a delayed period soon after stopping the Pill, it is probably a good idea to do a pregnancy test so as to know where you stand. Bear in mind, however, that it is more likely to be due to a readjustment of the hormones. If this persists beyond three months, a gynaecological check-up would be advisable.

also remember that your cycle is out of whack for a while after the pill, so it could just be your cycle trying to stabilise.

You can take the test if you are late with your period. You could be pregnant.
