I just a had a quick question, I had sex with my bf and I've been on birth control for months now but he came in me the other night then in the morning, that very day I got my period and I was just wondering if it's possible for me to be pregnant even though I got my period???

Brief Answer:
No chance of a pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
So here is your quick answer :)
It is impossible for you to be pregnant.
YOu already had your period ( provided it was on time and an expected period, not an irregular erratic one ).
And you were on birth control regularly.
So there is just no way that you are pregnant.
Relax, and dont worry about it.

Okay thanks. Well my periods haven't been on regular dates since I've starting on birth control. That's why I was worried. I just don't want to be worried till the end of the month for my period. Even if I did get my period why wouldn't I be pregnant?

Sure, I got my last period this Saturday April 26 and last month I got it on the 21. Now before I starting taking birth control I used to get my periods on the 17.
I just got my period this Saturday and before that I got it on the 21 of last month.

Brief Answer:
No risk of a pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Well, then it is a normal period, so dont worry.
When you menstruate, you are not ovulating ( producing an egg ), so you cannot fall pregnant.
As such, birth control ensures 99 % protection, so there is no risk in your case anyway.
Hope you are reassured.
