Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. No, you will not be safe if you stop taking your birth control pills. You should be taking the pill everyday and if you miss some, you should always use a backup method of protection such as condoms. If you do not, you will risk pregnancy.

I hope this helps answer your question.
