Pill and Pregnancy

hi all,

Just a quick question, should you fall pregnant on the pill, woul the pill mask the symptoms of the pregnancy, meaning you would come on as normal?

Also a pregnancy test can be done the day bfore your period? would this pick up say maybe two weeks pregnancy if it were there?

If you fell pregnant on the Pill, you would not have a period. The preganncy test is likely to be negative if done before your period is due.

Best wishes

oh dear, it is the same as me - i havent missed a pill in all the years i have been on the contraceptive.
I just wanted to know as some girls still have their periods when they are pregnant, so i was curious.

I wish you well though.
I guess we can wait for the gynaedoc to respond -good luck

I am on the pill as well and skipped a period. I am now 2 weeks late if i count from day my period would have ended and 3 weeks if i count from day it should have started.

I am interested to find out if the pill would harm the baby if i am pregnant.

i have already done 2 tests and both were negative.
