I haven’t gotten pregnant, so this is a hearsay report, but when you get pregnant on the pill, you don’t get a period. You skip it just like you would if you had gotten pregnant off the pill.  When I was on the pill, my doctor told me that if I didn’t get my period during the placebo week to not start the next pack of pills before taking a pregnancy test, just to make sure.

It’s not true, but I just had signs. If you’re not interested in Too Much Information then don’t read this next statement. My nipples were sensitive, I was very “gooey” downstairs, totally exhausted and falling asleep at random times.  I never even got to the part where I would have gotten my period and I was already thinking I was.  However, I ended up miscarrying. It was just not my time I guess.

this has not happened to me but if you’re on the pill and get accidentally pregnant, you will not continue to get your period (other than some spotting that may or may not occur in any pregnancy and some women think is just a really light period). I’d say if you make it through your placebo pill week with no period take a test just to make sure you’re not pregnant before beginning the next pack because if you WERE pregnant, I can’t imagine taking the hormone pills would be good for baby.

I haven’t gotten pregnant (knock on wood), but I am on the pill.  When you take the week of placebo pills you get your period, but if you were pregnant you wouldn’t get it. Hope that helps!

Edit: Looks like everyone beat me to the same answer! 🙂

exactly as everyone says.  Spotting, as well as all of the symptoms mwitter mentioned, and you may get 1 additional “period” (which technically is not a period) depending on where in your cycle you are but after that you should cease monthly bleeding.

Sometimes it’s crossed my mind “how would I know if i got accidentally pregnant since i don’t have periods anymore?!” I wouldn’t stress about it =]
