I'm not an expert doctor but being a girl, it's not having your period. Not having the normal healthy period you are suppose get after a certain amount of days, or at the end of the birth control pills are used up. That's really the only really sign using it, meaning something had went wrong. tak…e a preganncy test from a drug store like publix walmart windixie any where=] first you stop having periods then you get bigger in the lower abdomen lastly, you feel the little bugger kick (at about 5 months) You will miss a period and/or have other pregnancy symptoms. Either wait for your monthly cicle or go to your nearest pharmacy and buy a pregnancy test! if you can't afford a test go to your GP for a free and confidential test. Good Luck I was on birth control pills when I got pregnant....I didnt actually know I was pregnant until I was 16 weeks along....I now loking back on it I got nausea all the time..headaches..backaches..mood swings..i would get sick all the time...pretty much the usual signs of pregnancy...If I were you Id deffinetly take a pregnany test to find out if you really are or not....I hope this helped you a little. I have been asking my self the same thaing but i thaink that the only way to know is to go to a doctor and get cheack out Xoxo Lilley 001 If you are takng the pill regularly , then the chances of you getting pregnant are minimum. But the sign of pregnancy will be morning nausea. You still get the same symptoms You would experience symptoms, maybe notice breast changes such as veins or nipple tenderness and you would not bleed or if you did bleed, it would be very light. today's pregnancy tests are pretty advanced. Take a couple of them and go to see a doctor if they come back positive. Did you miss any days of birth control? I stopped mine for a week and a half and got pregnant right away, it happens that fast although some sources say it can take up to 6 months. Keep taking tests, mine didnt show up until October and I got pregnant September 3rd. Good luck :-) You wouldn't get your period (bright red and follows the light, heavy, light pattern) BUT in early pregnancy a women can have light pink/brown implantation bleeding around the time there period is due. So if your period was light, and you still have signs. I would think there is a strong chance that you are. You can take a test on the first day of your missed period so i guess as seen as you've already had your period you can take it now. but do u think iam? The contraceptive pill known as birth control is only 98% protective against pregnancy so there is still a 2% risk of pregnancy occurring. If pregnancy did occur then you would experience pregnancy symptoms. Because birth control tricks your body into thinking its pregnant, it can be difficult to notice pregnancy symptoms but you will experience pregnancy symptoms. Usually you will not have a period while on birth control when pregnant. But you may experience implantation bleeding which will be light vaginal bleeding unlike your period. However its always advisable to stop taking birth control when you suspect your pregnant. But just incase you are not pregnant & stop taking birth control this will not only put you at risk of pregnancy but also mess up your cycle. So I would advise you to see your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test. The blood test is called Quantitative beta HCG pregnancy blood test & you will need to ask your Doctor specifically for this test so write down the name of it if you do decide to have this blood test. You'll get the results within 3 days & it works by measuring the exact amount of HCG in your blood. signs the first sign of pregnancy is amenorrhoea. then quickening may be there.that is when mother feels like to have a life in her womb vomiting is itself not a doagnosis for pregnancy but its very common in pregnancy.it may not be there. uterus size strarts increasing,increase in hunger these r accessory signs u can add to ur diagnosis. if u had sex in the unsafe period without protection then its most likely to get pregnant if amenorrhoea is there. One method would be to take a pregnancy test, however you should wait at least 7-10 days from your suspected date of conception before a home pregnancy test is likely to be positive. you should get your normal period whil eon the birth control pill at the end of every package there should be a week of sugar pills that is the week you should be getting your period.. if you are on a brand of birth control pills with the number 24 instead of the number 28 than you probably dont have the sugar pills in which case you should be waiting a week before you start your next package of pills if you are waiting a week between packages or if you are taking your sugar pills and you are not getting your period it could mean that you are pregnant or that your pill is too strong if you are getting your period early it could mean your pill is not strong enough and you should see your doctor Easiest Way... A take home pregnancy test. After your missed period, you wont show signs of pregnancy (ex: morning sickness, hormonal flux) until about 3 weeks after your missed period. ( Full Answer )
The only way you would know if you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test or getting your blood drawn and checked for a beta hcg level.

Whether or not you know you are pregnant doesn't change the circumstances. So yes, if you smoke at all while pregnant, whether you have knowledge of the little baby inside of you or not you still harm the child.
From what I understand, most pills are made so that if you become pregnant while taking it, there is little to no harm to the developing baby. However, if you suspect that you are pregnant, you should see a physician for a blood test and if you are pregnant, stop taking the pill.
The good news is--there is no evidence that surgery or anesthesia in early pregnancy causes birth defects or any other problem for the baby. There may be a slight increase in the risk of miscarriage from the anesthetic, but you are out of range for that now, that is if you are at least 8 to 10 weeks…. And, if it is any consolation, you have your postpartum birth control all taken care of! ( Full Answer )

If you're on the birth control patch and think you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. The patch does not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test.
Well if you have taken a home-pregnancy test and it is positive then yes, you should stop. But you should not take the pregnancy test until at least the day of your expected period or 14 days after intercourse other wise your results will not likely be accurate. If you do get a positive pregnancy te…st then go ahead and stop taking your birth control and make an appointment with an OB/GYN. If the test is negative, continue taking your birth control pills until you do get a positive pregnancy test. If you stop taking it before you get the test results and it is negative, your chances of pregnancy are heightened greatly. But if you continue taking it until you get a positive test result, you will not have had enough to cause any harm to the baby. ( Full Answer )

If you're on birth control pills and you're taking them incorrectly can you be pregnant if his sperm entered your vagina?
Yes, in order to prevent pregnancy, birth control pills do have to be taken correctly. Of course, I don't know in what way you took them incorrectly; some errors are more serious than others. The most serious error would be to take them all at once, rather than one at a time on a daily basis. Some p…eople actually do that, thinking that it would be easier to get it over with rather than having to remember to take their pill every day. But if you just took your pill an hour early, let us say, that would not matter. So it depends. ( Full Answer )

If you are taking birth control pills and become pregnant continue to take the pills can it harm the baby?
If you ARE pregnant- you have no need to take birth control, you cannot get 'more pregnant' by not taking them or anything like that. Stop taking the birth control pills and start taking prenatal vitamins. Studies are linking birth control pills to being harmful to your baby- but even if they are no…t harmful- why continue to take them if you are already pregnant? Again, you cannot get pregnant with multiple babies at once like one now, one in a month or anything like that. Once you are pregnant, you are pregnant and birth control will not do anything positive for your little one and is pointless to continue using. ( Full Answer )

Each time you miss a pill you effectively increase your chances of becoming pregnant. ( Full Answer )
If you had sex it is possible you are pregnant. The chance of getting pregnant on your period, while taking BCP is quite small.
Take a pregnancy test. . The only real way to know is to take a pregnancy test. If you take the pill as directed you can assume you are not pregnant, the side effects (breast tenderness, nausea, moodiness, headaches) should subside over the next couple months.

The abortion pill works up to the 9th week. No other pill works. If you mean the birth control pill or morning after pill, it will not work as soon as you are pregnant.
There has been no evidence that shows that taking the pill in early pregnancy causes any birth defects to the developing fetus. They will not harm or end an existing pregnancy, but they are of no use to the pregnant woman. If you're pregnant and don't want to be, contact your health care provider… as soon as possible to talk about options; taking the birth control in the mistaken impression that it can end your pregnancy will only delay definite treatment. On the other hand, if you're pregnant and would like to continue the pregnancy, stop taking the birth control pill and contact your health care provider to set up prenatal care. Answer No, not neccassarily but could cause birth defects if you continue taking the pill. Would highly recommend you to STOP taking it because your baby is at risk of problems. ( Full Answer )

If 1000 couples use the birth control pill perfectly for a year, three will experience a pregnancy. But people don't use it perfectly, and so three couples in a hundred typically get pregnant during a year of birth control pill use. You're not likely to get pregnant on the pill if you use it correct…ly; if you don't, consider using condoms along with the pill and/or get on a method that doesn't require you to do something every day.
