Hi, Melissa here. I'm wondering if I may be pg. I have a 4 mos. old and was having some hormonal issues so I went on the pill. I started taking it not right on time (not right after my period started but a week or two after my new cycle had started.) So anyway, I got on track with the pill even though my period tried to start when it would have had I not started the pill but just some light spotting and then I had my real period on schedule with my pills. Just as it was ending my DH and I had sex and the next couple of days I had cervical mucus that was similar to ovulation for me. We didn't use anything because A) isn't a month on the pill enough to get it going? and B.) it was right after my period anyway so I figured I was safe regardless. But now I'm wondering if my body was thinking about where my cycle would have been had I not started the pill. Ugh. Long story short, I'm feeling nauseous which was my first sign with my 4 mos. old so I think I may be pg. If I were to take a test, would it register since I've been on the pill? I'm wonderering if I should stop taking it till I know if I'm pg. What harm does it do?
I read on peeonastick.com (a great site if you have a few minutes) that the hormones in the pill can't show up or change or mask etc. the results of a pregnancy test since the hormone that reacts to the pregnancy test are only present when you are pregnant. There isn't any food/drink/drug that can interfere with the results on a pregnancy test.
I'd say test, but if you don't think that you've missed your period I would WAIT. I took a pregnancy test the other day WAY too early - hoping to know one way or another - and it came up negative .... and now I don't really know whether I'm not pregnant or whether I am but just tested too early!
Hopefully someone else will post with more info to you!
Hope you get the result you're hoping for!

Women have gotten pregnant on the pill....even after taking them for years! You can also get pregnant right after your period.
I would get tested. When is your AF supposed to come?
Also, I would contact a dr. If you stop taking the pills, you could become pregnant (if you aren't already). If you do decide to quit the pills for awhile, you might want to look at other alternatives while you find out (like condoms).
Taking birth control pills while pregnant could be harmful to your baby but there have been plenty of women who continued to take them for another month because they didnt realize that they were pregnant.
Here's some info I found on the 'net:
What happens if you take birth control pills while you're pregnant?
If you continued taking your birth control pill because you didn't realize you were pregnant, don't be alarmed. Despite years of this accident happening, there's very little evidence that exposure to the hormones in birth control pills causes birth defects.
Still, the birth control pill is a potent estrogen. Lessons learned from women who took diethylstilbestrol — a synthetic estrogen that was later linked with cancer — to prevent miscarriage in early pregnancy suggest that such exposure should be minimized.
Once you learn that you're pregnant, stop taking the birth control pill.
A 1.5 years on the same pill and I am now 9 weeks 3 days pregnantl. It does happen. I missed one pill (should be able to miss 3 with seasonal bc). If I were you I would stop the pills (use back-up methods) and see if you have a period if not test or go to the Dr. You may have to wait until it would be time for your period to get an accurate result. Just a suggestion from someone who was in your shoes a month ago.
BTW, my dr told me alot of women are very, very fertile if they get messed up on their bc.
