Period

What's the chances of getting pregnant on
Birth control and on my period?

Hi!
If you were my patient I would advise you that it is possible to conceive while menstruating, but rare.  Also it is possible to conceive while taking birth control pills, but rare if you are taking them according to the package instructions. If you are super worried, you could take the morning after pill
(Plan B or Next Choice), BUT I would think that might be overkill.
Good luck!

There's always a chance as long as you're having sex x

Were you by chance on any antibiotics recently? That can lower the effectiveness of birth control and they always recommend using back up contraception. I know a few people who got pregnant while on antibiotics. Just a thought.
