Re: is it possible to get pregnant while on sugar pill?
I think it is important to remember that birth control pills aren't 100% effective in preventing pregnancy, so it is possible to get pregnant during any part of the pack if you don't take the pills correctly, or if you are on a medication that counteracts the birth control. If you take your pills everyday without fail, it is unlikely you would get pregnant on the sugar pills or "inactive" pills during your period week. Because while during the sugar pill week you are taking inactive pills-they have no hormones, if you took all of the other 3 weeks worth of active, hormone pills correctly then they have done their job-they have prevented you from ovulating, and thickened your cervical mucus and also thinned the lining of your uterus... all things that prevent pregnancy. I hope this helps to clear things up for you guys, its a good question that you asked, and common. have a good night.
