How do you know you're pregnant if you take the contraception pill?

I was wondering how do you know you're pregnant if you take the contraception pill. I know you get a withdrawal period but would it still occur when you'tr pregnant?

  • The morning after pill? Unless you have a super fast embryo in there,the chance that it implanted in that 3 days is quite slim.

  • Withdrawal period? If you have taken the regular pill at the same time every day you most likely are not pregnant,, if you took the morning after pill within 48 hours of the ONLY TIME you had unprotected sex, you most likely are not pregnant,, birth control or not, and old fashioned pregnancy test as soon as you miss a period will tell you if your pregnant or not,,

  • If you get pregnant while on birth control pills (please get the name right people) you would not have your period even during your off week in most cases. Now there are cases of women who continue to have periods even after they get pregnant. I don't think you can blame that on the "different colored pills in the pack" very often. Most often these women have been told they can't get pregnant and just never worry about birth control or testing or being late. There are all kinds of reasons given why women don't realize they are pregnant, but it only applies to a very small number of women each year. It isn't common at all. Normal women on the pill who get pregnant do not have a period. The hormones of pregnancy pretty much have to be stronger than the BC pill or the pregnancy wouldn't have happened in the first place.
