Hi, I am on the mini pill and I haven’t had a period for 6 years. Is it possible to get pregnant. I am regular at taking my pill on time etc. Thank you
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: no pain. I don’t have periods at all
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

hi, I'm Dr osula. I need to clarify your question. Do you mean is it possible to get pregnant while on the pill or when you come off it?

Hi, thanks. I mean it is possible for whilst I am on it. I haven’t had a period for 6 years, am very regular with my taking my pill and I don’t want to get pregnant. I know it’s probably a silly question. Thank you

well, if you're regular then you're unlikely to get pregnant, its not impossible but very unlikely

Does my lack of period also help with not getting pregnant?

yes cos it means you are not ovulating
