Can I still get pregnant after getting period if I stop my birth control?

I had sex on Wednesday the day before I got my period. I'm supposed to start new pack of birth control on Saturday but I am not planning to have sex anytime soon. Is it safe to stop taking the pills without getting pregnant? Can the sperm survive from Wednesday and survive my period if any happened to be inside me? Thank you!
