Can you become pregnant on the pill and still bleed?

I've been taking the pill for two months now and i still had my period, but I kind of feel that I might be pregnant is that possible or would my period not have came if I were?

  • My sister was 4 months pregnant before she stopped having a period - the only comfort the doctor offered was "it happens - not often but it happens". So I guess anything is possible. Have a checkup - if you're pregnant they'll tell you.

  • I don't know why but it is possible! I got pregnant on the pill. I even had a period though it didn't start right away like it should have. Two weeks later I just felt off! I took a test and it was a blazing positive! #4 here we come...LOL

  • Sometimes the hormones don't block every pregnancy. Sperm are squirrely little Also if you produce more than one egg, one could be sloughed and the other one become fertilized. Several things also decrease the effectiveness of BC pills. Antibiotics for one. Take a test...and if you do not want to become pregnant, use an alternate form of birth control as well. Just to be safe.

  • Stress is what got my birth control failing. I had one period while pregnant and that one was right after I got pregnant. My mother had her period all they way through to the third trimester with me but I don't think she was on birth control at any point during the pregnancy. If you didn't wait the month before using the pill only then you could have just gotten pregnant before it kicked in. Also if you've only been on it for two months, feeling pregnant may just be your body getting used to the pill. I felt all sorts of off the first time I started taking the pill.
