If you had sex it is possible you are pregnant. The chance of getting pregnant on your period, while taking BCP is quite small.

If you have not started taking birth control and you think your pregnant can you start taking birth control to stop it even though you havent started your period?

Taking birth control if you are pregnant will NOT stop the pregnancy. Birth control does not cause abortion but stops the ovaries from freeing an egg into the falopian tube and the womb. Plan B, or the morning after pill, will stop the fertilised egg from attaching itself to the endometer if taken within a certain amount of time. It has to be taken within 72 hours of the intercourse, however, and its efficacy decreases with the passing of time. Furthermore, taking the pill while pregnant could hurt the baby.

Is it normal for your period to last longer than usual if you started taking birth control on the first day of your period?

Yes, sometmes when you start birth control you will have break through bleeding and it can tie in with your period since you started the pill during your period.

How soon do you get your period if you stop taking birth control?

Most women will have their period within a week or two of stopping birth control pills, and may be fertile from the first day they stop taking it. If you have stopped taking birth control and have not had your regular period as expected, you need a pregnancy test to be sure whether you are pregnant or not.

You are on birth control and your period started on the 3rd week on the 3rd day your period ended early on the 2nd day of the placebo pill you had sex on the 6th day can you get pregnant?

There is always a slim chance while on the pill you might get pregnant. However if you have been on the pill for at least a month and have not missed taking it you are probably not pregnant.

Can you still get pregnant by skipping your period using your birth control pills?

As long as you are taking your birth control pills it is very unlikely that you would get pregnant, wether you skip your period or not. Als always if you are unsure, speak to your doctor or nurse.
