Hi. (:
I was just wondering what the pregnancy indicators were for someone on the pill?
Also, if you've had a period whilst on the pill, is that a pretty conclusive way of knowing you're not pregnant?
I just happened to stumble upon a ton of horror stories on the net about women who got pregnant whilst on OCPs but still continued to have their periods. Just freaked me out a bit!
Thanks in advance. (:

It is not possible to have a period (or withdrawal bleed, the "period" you get on the pill) and be pregnant. So, the first indication of pregnancy for someone on the pill would be the same as that for someone not on the pill: they would miss their withdrawal bleed.

Honestly, you can find something to support almost any claim somewhere on the internet - doesn't mean it's true or accurate. [Smile] It's possible to have some bleeding during pregnancy, but it wouldn't likely resemble a period and wouldn't follow a pattern.

Awesome. Thanks a lot for your reply.
Yeah, I know what you mean. When it comes to pregnancy paranoia and google, it's pretty much seek and you shall find.
Cheers. (:
