Can you get pregnant a week after you stop birth control

Patient: Can you get pregnant if your girlfriend quite her birth control 7 to 8 days ago?

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.There is a possibility of getting pregnant on stopping birth control pills a week earlier .Also, one can get pregnant even when taking them.It is ideal that you may wish you rule out pregnancy, by a beta hcg blood test which can give results accurately when done from day 25 of the cycle.Do consult a gynecologist for interpretation and further guidance.Hope this helpedRegards.
