Can I ovulate when on birth control pill? adult content

I've been on birth control pill for a couple of years now. I've notice this month that I have egg white cervical mucus like ovulation. I take my pill everyday around the same time sometimes a hour later but not more than that. I know you're not suppose to ovulate on birth control ( correct me if I'm wrong) but that mucus makes me think otherwise. Can it be cause by the pill and I never noticed it?

  • I believe it depends on the pill and how it functions to prevent the pregnancy.

  • Are you sure it wasn't leftover semen?

  • if you're on the mini pill you can ovulate...it just keeps fertilized eggs from implanting (thats how i got DD haha).

  • It wasn't left over semen cause we use the pull out method as well....
