Can I fall pregnant while on the pill?

can i fall pregnant while on the pill? i dont really drink. dont smoke and no other meds taken. i had intercourse on the 11th day. i dont know if im making a big deal saying im a lil nauseous and i have some slight cramping. the thing is i also get it when stressesd. anything i should look out for?

Answer: Hi, There is a one percent chance of falling pregnant when using the pill and this is usually when it is not taken as recommended. If you are ill it can also cause it not to work properly. Taking the pill can sometimes also cause slight nausea and bloating that is similar to early pregnancy. If you do think that you may be pregnant it is advisable to do a pregnancy test to be sure. Best wishes, Alex
