Pregnant on the pill?
Hi there
What are the chances that one can fall pregnant whilst on the pill? I haven't missed any days, but am worried as I had TOP in August and am feeling the same way I felt then. Also, if I get my period is that a sure indicator that I'm safe - ie: the pill can't force you to have your period despite being pregnant?????

The chances are less than 1% if taken correctly. If you are pregnant, you will not have a period. The Pill can cause symptoms similar to those of pregnancy.

Best wishes
