You don't ovulate when you are on BC pills but you still get AF. So, yes you get AF even when you don't ovulate. Stress does have an impact on AF. If you get too stressed, AF may not show at all until you calm down. I knew a friend this happened too when she had alot going on in her life.
You can still experiece bleeding without ovulating. For the sake of tracking your fertility, you would call it AF, but medically speaking - it really isn't a true AF. What can happen when you fail to ovulate, the uterual build-up can get so great, the body will release it, so it will act and look similar to AF - I believe it is referred to as "breakthrough bleeding". This is the same type of thing that happens each month when on B/C pills. Again you would treat it like AF and can call it AF for the sake of charting your cycles.
(I think because fertility literature often tells you that scientifically it isn't really menstration, sometimes people mistaken it it believe that because they've experienced bleeding, then they are/always have ovulated - when that may not be the case).
