Why would someone who has been on the pill for two months get their period on the third week of their active hormone pills and not during the sugar pills?

It could also be something called "breakthrough bleeding". It's very normal for this to happen when one first begins taking the pill. It's harmless, albeit annoying. If you were late taking a pill or missed one, then you would start your period early. Or since you havne't been on the pill for very long, you could just need a different type of pill. If this has happened every month, that is the case. If it only happened one month, it could still be the reason. Call your doctor and ask them about it.

Yes they are! There is a hormone in your blood called HCG, which is the pregnancy hormone. It has to be a certain level for the hormone to appear in the test results. It doen't matter wheither you are in the middle of your cycle or not! You can still get periods during your first few months of pregnancy. I did! Good luck to you.

The hormone hCG is produced from the syncytiotrophoblast cells of the developing embryo. This hormone is responsible for maintaining the corpus luteum during pregnancy for 3-4 months so that the corpus luteum continues to produce progesterone. Progesterone is needed to prevent a menstual cycle while pregnant. After 3-4 months, the placenta takes over the production of progesterone.
