Is it at all possible to get pregnant while taking mononessa?

Birth Control pills work 3 ways. They prevent ovulation. They decrease the lining of the uterus, and they thicken the mucous at the cervix.
This means that if you take your pill every day at roughly the same time, you will not get pregnant. There are some medications that decrease the ability of the pill to work. One of them is antibiotics, so that if you’re on them you should use a backup method of birth control.
You will not get pregnant when you are on the inactive pills. YOU DO NOT OVULATE WHEN ON THE PILL.
You may have a very light or even no period from time to time because of the decrease in uterine lining.
You do not ever need to take plan B. The only reason for condoms when on the pills is to prevent STDS.
If you forget a pill your chances of getting pregnant increase slightly. The more pills your forget, the more your chance of pregnancy.
When first starting the pill you need to use back up birthcontrol for at least the first week. After you start the pill, when you have your period has nothing to do with taking the pill. You just keep taking them one pack after the other. You do not stop them if you start spotting, you do not stop them if you don’t have a period, bleeding has nothing at all to do with when you take your pills, once you’ve started them.
If taken correctly birth control pills have a less then 1 % failure rate.

It is possible, but if you take the pills as directed and at around the same time every day, and if you miss a pill you take it as soon as you remember. also, if you take antibiotics you need to use a back up. If you miss more than 2 pills and have unprotected sex you should use the Plan B, although I don't recommend using that often because it can really mess up your cycle. I wish you luck and hope that everything works out ok for you. :)
