No it is not normal to ovulate while you are on birth control pills. The entire idea behind taking the pill is to prevent the body from producing or releasing an egg. If you are taking combination pills, the progesterone in the pill causes your body to "think" it is pregnant, thus preventing ovulation.

You don't normally ovulate on the birth control pill, although you may if you miss pills.

The purpose of BCP is to prevent ovulation. If you take The Pill as directed, you are not ovulating.

If your period wasn't due & you're on birth control, then this is break through bleeding. Birth control stops you from ovulating. If you're currently on the 7day break or sugar pills then this is normal.

It is not normal to feel sick after taking birth control pills. If you feel that the pills are making you sick, you should contact your doctor and have them changed.Taking birth control pills should not make you feel sick. That is not normal.
