Hello, I understand your doubt about Contraceptives and pregnancy. Once you are pregnant your periods stop even if you take oral contraceptives. The use of oral contraceptives during pregnancy is not recommended and should be stopped; they won’t cause a false period and also they won’t harm the baby. Oral contraceptives are highly effective when used properly; please comply with them to avoid unwanted pregnancies. I hope I cleared your doubt.
