I am having a difficult time determining when your last menstrual period began, but most likely nothing is "wrong" with your body!

When you miss pills (birth control), and double-up, you are not actually having two periods as you said...you are experiencing breakthrough bleeding, and then most likely are having your expected bleeding during your inactive week of pills. If you are not wanting to become pregnant, please talk with your doctor about other birth control options.

I am unclear why you are wondering if you are pregnant...did you have unprotected sex since your last period? Since you have stopped taking your pills, I am unclear if you are using any other form of birth control (condoms), but if you are having unprotected sex, then yes, there would be a chance of pregnancy.

If you are no longer worried about pregnancy (due to taking the HPT, and it has been longer than 2 weeks since you had sex), then the HPT is most likely accurate, and your menstrual period may take a cycle or two to become regular after you abruptly stop taking your birth control pills.
