Hello, I'm 16 years old, and I am about 220 Pounds, For a full year, I was off of my Period, and I came on my Period once in one year. Finally in March, I went to the Doctor about it, and they put me on Triqular Birth Control. I had my Period, in April, May, Normally, for a bout a week, and it was like the third or fourth white pill, I came on. June month, I came on late, I was on on the 5th pill, but had a short period, for about four days instead of a week. This month, I haven't came on. & I am on the sixth white pill in the box. I told my doctor, she asked did I skip I pill, I never. I am thinking about it might be there, in April, and May month, I took them every night at like exactly 10pm. & June month, I took them around 10pm-1am, every night around that time. This month, I've took them around 10-12am, every night. Maybe that could be why? Anyways, I am wondering, if I were to have sex, would I get pregnant? Does this birth control cover from getting pregnant, and having not normal periods all the time, therefore I wouldn't know the same? Does this birth control cover from not getting pregnant? I wouldn't be able to tell really if I was pregnant or not, because my periods aren't always the exactly same, that's why I am on this birth control in the first place. But, I am wondering, Would I get pregnant? lol. So yeah. Would I get pregnant, even though I am on birth control? does this birth control, cover from not getting pregnant? Thanks. :) lol.

Hello and thank you for using EmpowHer,
First of all, it is important to know that weight can greatly effect hormones. This is probably the reason why you body is not able to support a regular period even while taking the birth control pills.
Having an irregular period makes it difficult to become pregnant. The fact that you still are not having a regular period does not indicate that the birth control is not working. It only indicates that your body is still not hormonally balanced.
So the short answer is: yes. You are fully protected as long as you take the birth control correctly.
