    most definitely.  Rare, but possible.  Time for a test or a trip to the doc.

    Yes, you can get pregnant while using the pill.  With two and half months since your last period you are either pregnant or suffering from some sort of illness that is preventing you from having your period.

    Time to get checked out.  I would start with one of those tests you can pick up in most stores and if that is negative, you should see your doc.

    Yes! Birth control pills are only 99% effective i believe. There is still that one percent.

    Also, some antibiotics can lower the effectiveness of the pill. unfortunately, some nurses don't know about this or know about it, but just forgets to tell you.

    June 5 eyy? Damn. Your probably pregnant. Have you noticed any changes in diet, mood or anything?

    I notice this doesn't say a specific type of birth control, though I'm going to guess that the original question was directed at someone in particular. There are some forms of birth control that can stop a period (i.e. depoprovera), and stress can cause some people to go months at a time without a period, so that in itself is not a definite indicator. All birth control methods -- except abstinence -- have a failure rate, and no matter what you're taking it's still possible to get pregnant as long as you're having sex. I personally know three people who were on depoprovera and got pregnant, but didn't know about it until they felt their babies start to move because they didn't get a period. I myself am currently seven months pregnant with a baby conceived while on ortho tricyclin. Simple solution, get a pregnancy test.

    Yes you can.  It also depends on the kind of birth control.  If you don't take the pill at the same time everyday your percentage of protection goes down.  Even if you did take it at the same time everyday, no method is 100% effective.
