If taken correctly, the answer is no (most of the time, read on to find out why). The purpose of the pill is to prevent ovulation from occurring, so typically an egg is not released therefore pregnancy will not occur. Another thing that the pill does is make the vaginal mucus thicker preventing most sperm from entering the cervix.Factors such as diarrhea, vomiting, missing a pill, etc. may allow the egg to be released which is the reason why there is a failure rate with the pill. Another factor that happens to any woman is ovulation occurring even if the pill is taken correctly, so basically even if everything is perfect ovulation may still occur while on the pill.The birth control pill is designed to prevent ovulation.
