Yes you can fall pregnant on the pill, as with every other type of contraceptive. There is only 3 ways to make sure you never fall pregnant:
Have you missed a period? If so I' d do a test to be sure, if neg (Could be a false negative), wait a week and do another one as the HGC levels are oft too low early on to be detected and waiting a week will show a more accurate result.
