Is it possible to get a withdrawal bleed from oral contraceptives and still be pregnant?

It is possible -- we couldn't accurately say it is totally IMpossible -- but it'd be highly unlikely.

If and when people become pregnant the most common first change to the body that a person can and does notice is a missed period or withdrawal bleed. That is what most commonly happens -- and it's unusual when it doesn't -- when a person becomes pregnant.

But we'll always tell people who are concerned about a possible pregnancy to try and access and take a pregnancy test. The most accurate way to determine whether we're pregnant or not is via a test.
