-If a woman is pregnant while on birth control, will she still have her withdrawal bleed?
No, she will not have her withdrawl bleed. It is impossible to have a period OR an artificial-period like you get while on hormonal birth control if you are pregnant.
-Is it normal to have sharp, stinging pains in the area where your ovaries pretty much are when taking the highest dosage [Ortho Lo, Dark blue pills] of hormonal birth control?
Sharp stinging pains are not normal ANYTIME (though most women can never exactly pinpoint their ovaries, and often times gas pains can occur in a similar area and can be mistaken for other pains- still, unexplainable pains should ALWAYS be checked out by a doctor, asap.)
-Is there such thing as "too much" lube?
Not really, obviously if you're using tubes full you may have a problem with sliperiness and just too much lube, but that's not really an issue of the health or safety in using lubricant.
-And it is normal to miss a period within the first three months of starting BC, correct?
Yup, while your body is still adjusting to the hormones, it's usual to expect some wonkiness, including possibly missing a withdrawl bleed entirely. If it happens after about the first three months, however, it would be good to check with a gynecologist.

Thank you very much. You were very clear and helpful!
About the pain, I am pretty sure you are right - they are gas pains. When I relieve myself I feel a bit better [sorry if that was TMI haha]. I will wait it out a few days to see if that is the true cause, if not, I will tell my mother and try to see a doctor. Thanks again. =]
