Can you get pregnant while on you're period & on birth control?

Unlikely: It's unlikely that you'll ovulate in the first few days after you start bleeding. However, I do tell my patients to consider that there is no such thing as a 'safe' day. If you are taking your birth control pills as well, then that's another protection. Birth control pills when taken perfectly every day prevent about 96% of all pregnancies. So still no 100%. Best of luck. ...Read more

I skipped my period In January and February. It started 2 weeks ago and - I still have a light bleed. I am not on birth control (not pregnant)

Annovulatory: It sounds like you had a couple of cycles where you didn't ovulate and now you are having breakthrough bleeding. When you don't ovulate the uterine lining thickens and then breaks off in a way that may be prolonged and/or heavy. You may need to see a GYN to get it under control and a birth control pill should help for cycle control ...Read more
