While nearly infallible in preventing pregnancy, birth control pills do fail sometimes and you may find yourself in that 1/2% pregnant. Find out the signs you are pregnant while on birth control.
Birth control pills are the most effective form of contraception for sexually active women. However, there are still cases when they are not enough to prevent pregnancy, but they influence the symptoms and lead to their misinterpretations. Many women see doctors and take various tests before finding out that their problem is not the condition they were afraid of, but an unexpected pregnancy.

Here is a list with 6 of the most common signs you are pregnant while on birth control.
If you are an emotionally stable person and you begin to experience sudden changes of mood or you have an exaggerated reaction towards a particular situation that normally does not affect you, this can be a sign that you conceived while on birth control. Mood swings are caused by the changes that occur inside your body and brain due to the increased level of certain hormones.
For women who have irregular periods, a delay is not a big deal, but, if your menstruation follows a strict pattern, a one week delay can be a sign of pregnancy. However, stress and depression can also justify a missing period, so it is never amiss to take a pregnancy test.
If you urinate more frequently than before, without this process being influenced by any other condition you suffer from, the cause may be a recently installed pregnancy. When the egg is fixed, the uterus enlarges and poses pressure on the bladder, preventing it from storing the same amounts of urine.
One of the transformations noticeable on the first week after the egg is fertilized is that of your breasts. They get swollen, and touches become painful. The change appears as a result of the increased level of hormones, but, sometimes, it can also be a side effect of the contraceptive treatment.
Excessive sensibility to smells can also be among the signs you are pregnant while on birth control. Not only that you get nausea or even start vomiting when you smell something unpleasant, but you can develop the same reaction to gentle, delicate smells that used to please you.
A sudden, involuntary change in your diet or eating program can also be a symptom of pregnancy, even if you take birth control pills. You may have a considerably greater appetite, and you may crave for foods in bizarre combinations, or you may not be able to eat certain foods or at certain hours.
