No you discontinue taking Birth Control pills when you become pregnant. Birth control is a method used to prevent pregnancy. You are already pregnant so birth control has no use. Also, it may possibly cause bad side effects to continue taking birth control pills while you are pregnant.

Can you become pregnant while taking birth control and still have a period?

If you are definitely taking your pills at the same time everyday and are still having a period you should be okay. No method is 100% so I would recommend if you are concerned to use 2 methods such as a condom and birth control pills. If you believe that you could be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test. There actually are pregnant women that do have a type of spotting which seems like a period but that is mostly if the person doesn't have a regular period from the start. Typically the only ways that that you can get pregnant if you are on birth control: -If you aren't taking the BC at the same time/regularly every day. -If you switch from different forms of birth control (ie: depo prevera(sp?) and birth control pills) -If you are on antibiotics and birth control. Some antibiotics/medications interfere with birth control pills so make sure that you talk to your doctor when going on new meds. On shows such as "I didn't know I was pregnant," it does show different circumstances that women have become pregnant and not even know it... (such as still having a period and no weight gain). This is REALLY RARE though.

Well this answer requires knowing a few more things. Is your period late? Have you been taking your birth control pills when you should be? No Birth control is 100% effective.

Ive been taking birth control pills for 10 years now I've been missing pills can i still get pregnant even though it's in my system?

YES. It does not matter how long you have been on birth control. If you miss pills, you have a good chance of becoming pregnant. Use alternate forms of contraception (condoms) until your next cycle. Birth control works by having a constant level of hormones in your body. The last 7 pills in your pack contain no hormones. So each month, all of the birth control hormone that is in your body is depleted. Thus, it does not matter how long you have been on birth control.
