February being a short month should have nothing to do with your period start date. So if your period starts late in March, it is not as a result of how many days are in February. Your period should come when it is due; if it is later than usual, you might want to take a pregnancy test or consult your doctor.

Can a girl be pregnant while on Apri birth control if she still gets her period?

Even though it is rare, having a period does not always rule out pregnancy. In some cases, the body reacts to the pregnancy by allowing the myometrium to shed (the period) even though an egg is attached. Usually however, the period will be atypical. It will be very short or very light. The only way to be absolutely sure (99%) is to take the pregnancy test again after a couple of days have passed.
