Can you get pregnant 2 days before you period if you are on the pill and using protection?

I would say it is 98% unlikely to get pregnant 2 days before you period while you're on the pill and using protection.

Can you get pregnant a day before the period while on the Pill?

It's highly unlikely. Typically ovulation occurs two weeks before menstruation, with a woman being fertile up to a week beforehand when there is fertile quality cervical mucus present to keep sperm alive in the vagina up until ovulation, and even if multiple eggs are released there would only be a viable egg for up to 48 hours. It is possible to have a shorter luteal phase (the phase between ovulation and menstruation) and thus you could ovulate just 6 days before menstruation, however that would make pregnancy less likely. It takes up to 10 days for a fertilised egg to travel down to the uterus to implant, 6 days are unlikely to be enough time for this to occur or for pregnancy hormones to get to a high enough level to prevent menstruation (thus loss of pregnancy). However unless you use fertility awareness method you can't know when you are fertile or not, you may predict your period is due in 6 days but you could be wrong. If you want to avoid unwanted pregnancy you should use birth control.

Did anyone ever get pregnant while they were on their period?

Yes, it is entirely possible A gal can get pregnant: * before their period * during their period * after their period * PERIOD It's as simple as that and mostly accepted by the medical community. The "Pill" may help prevent pregnancy, but it is not 100% proof positive effective in every case.

Could you get pregnant on your period while skipping your birth control pill?

No,provided you have taken it properly you are protected all the time.

You started your pill the Sunday that you started your period you had your period for 2 weeks on the following Sunday you forgot to take your pill and your boyfriend got off inside you could you be pr?

yes. you have to be taking the pill in advance ( 3 months) before you have intercourse. even when taking the pill for a while, there will always be the slight chance of getting pregnant.

What are the chances of you being pregnant if you started taking your pill on the 4th day of your menstrual cycle and then having unprotected sex on the 7th day while continuing to take your pill?

It would depend how long you have been on the pill before. If you have taken the pill for over 7 days then you are protected while you take the 'period gap'. If you have only just started taking the pill the chances are low but you still could become pregnant.
