Can you still get pregnant while taking birth control pills

Recently i had my period. Was not much of one. It lasted the regular length. Then about 6 days later i started to bleed. The day before i was hurting like someone kicked me in that area. well the bleeding was so bad i went to the emergency. They found a cyst on my ovary. It was the size of a tennis ball. well it is a week later and i am having symptoms of being pregnant. mostly my breasts hurt. normal before my period but not this bad. can anyone please tell me whats going on. is it my hormones?

You can still get pregnant on birth control pills, since they are not 100% effective even with perfect use, and most people aren't perfect. If you want to find out whether or not you are pregnant you should probably try your doctor since you recently had some health issues. If you don't want to go to the doctor try waiting a little longer to see if you get your period.

My older sister had this problem for several years. Birth control actually should help shrink the size of these cysts. They can be extremely painful, and your hormones can get a little crazy. You should schedule a a trip to see your O.B. as soon as you can though to discuss how he wants to treat it.

Thank you so much for your help. I have been taking birth control for 11 years now. I have been going threw this for the same length of time. And as the years go by it gets worse and worse. I am just ready to get these organs out of me. Again thanks for your answer!

Birth control works by making your body believe that it is already pregnant by releasing progesterone.

Yes you can, my aunt had 4 birth control babies. She had a shot to remove one of her babies 3 times, he still lived through it but he is slow

That is a bit of trama for that area. Could definitely be pregnant, but with the work done on the area recently, could be hormones. Get it checked out by the doctor.
