How will you know if you're pregant while on birth control?

If you’re on birth control and you get pregnant how will you know?

Answer #1

Hi Gizmo,

The fact that you are on Birth Control does not stop you from having your menstral cycle. (your period) If you are late for or do not have your monthly period, you still should take a pregnancy test. They are easily obtainable in the pharmacy and just follow the instuctions on the box. Although Birth control (the pill) is in the upper 90% of protecting you from pregnacy, woman still do get pregnant while taking it. A few things to remember….. sometimes one pregnancy test is not enough and if you begin to have your menstral cycle again, the chances are you are NOT pregnant. Hope this helps
