Birth control and pregnancy


Q: I recently had a baby hes 2 months old and i had gotten my period just about 2 weeks ago but it only lasted 3 days once i started my birth control it stopped.. i started my birth control last monday and have now been on it for a week. i dont really take the pill at the same time everyday and i had unprotected sex about 4 times with no pull out method.. what are the chances of getting pregnant? cause i do know that after having a child the chances are higher but would the birth control have worked yet? or does it take 3 months to set in my system? and if theres a chance of pergnancy should i stop taking the pills or keep taking them ?
