Pills not perfect: There is no guarantee that a woman using any form of contraceptive pill cannot get pregnant. So if she thinks she might be pregnant or if she is having an unusual response to the pills, an obgyn doctor would typically want to see her.

A 22-year-old female asked:
If you were pregnant, would your period come on with the birth control pills that make it come on?

No: If you conceive when taking the pill - the first indication could be that you do not start you period when it is due. Pregnancy will prevent a woman from having her period. Some implantation can happen at about the time the period is due but that does not constitute menstrual bleeding.

Can birth control pills stop my period?

Sure.: If you take them without the placebo/iron pills each cycle x3, you can only have your period every 3 moths safely. Talk to your gynecologist before trying this, as it may not be the best idea for you.
