I have a question I hope you all can answer, I am on the pill and I have my period on my inactive pills, Is it possible to be pregnant and get period on inactive pills on bc, right when you ussually get your withdrawl bleeding, I just feel off and thought I might be pregnant, But maybe its just because I haven't slept properly all week but yeah is that possible? thank you

When it looks like a period (or withdrawal bleed), acts like one and comes when you expect one, it almost always is one. And yes, if you're having that, you can be awfully sure you're not pregnant.

Some people do get other kinds of bleeding when pregnant, and rarely, it can be mistaken for a period. So, if you really don't feel sure, especially if you haven't been taking your pill properly, you can always take a pregnancy test to be sure.

so i shouldn't have a reason to believe I'm pregnant because I never missed a pill and had the withdrawl right on time and it lasted as long as it lasted but is a little less?
