Is it possible to ovulate when on the pill and not missed any doses?

Is it possible to ovulate when on the pill and not missed any doses?

Yes: The pill is about 99% effective in preventing pregnancy when used precisely according to instructions, but it is not completely bulletproof.

What does it mean when your on the BC pill and it's time for you to take the sugar pill but never gets a period ?
