Q: Would it be possible to get pregnant on birthcontrol and still get periods? I
last had sex on Sept 10 and got my period Sept 13 I bleed for 5-6 days . It is
December and I have NOT missed a period. Yet I have gained a heightened sense
of smell, really sore breasts, and an ache in my pelvis for a few weeks now that
wil not let up. I have gained weight. but never had nausea or morn sickness.
Took HPT that is neg. Just worried about these symtptom...Thank you
