Pregnancy indicators.

I would like to know what the signs of pregnancy are in a woman who takes the pill, seeing as the 'periods' you have are not real periods. Is it possible to carry on having periods and be pregnant at the same time while on the pill? Thanks very much.

Becoming pregnant whilst using any form of contraception means that your contraception is not working, so make sure you find out what risks are associated with your contraceptive choice and how to make sure it works. In any case, pill or no pill, the ONLY reliable test for pregnancy is a urine test carried out by your doctor. I often receive similar questions, but this really is the only answer.
