stopping the pill at day 6, trying to conceive?

I took bc for 6 days, at different time frames and suffer from diarhhea during this time. I started the birth control on the third day of my period and had a 5 day period. I had unprotected sex the day after stopping bc where I had my last pill previously at 11am. I didnt take any further pills in hopes to conceive, because that was my fertile week. Is this possible? How long do I have to wait before taking a pregnancy test? 28 days after break through bleeding or a week after when my normal period is suppose to arrive?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Keep in mind that breakthrough bleeding may not occur. You need to wait until your next full period. If you miss it completely, take a pregnancy test. If it comes as usual, you are not pregnant.
