If you're using the birth control as instructed then generally you would not fall pregnant. Most methods, such as the pill, IUD, shots, etc., have less than 1% failure rate if used perfectly. So, you could be in the <1% that still gets pregnant. You ovulate usually about 2 weeks before you would start your period, so it is possible to get pregnant and not have a period. If you have symptoms you're not sure about, talk to your doctor. Only they can tell you for sure if you are indeed pregnant.

Just because you do not get a period does not mean you do not ovulate. While it is lees likely you'd conceive; if you start with symptoms or are at concerned, do a home test. Most hormonal BC, when taken or used as directed, will prevent ovulation and implantation. Why are you concerned?

No one here can help.
If you suspect you're pregnant then see your doctor.
You don't need a period to fall pregnant, you need to ovulate and you can ovulate without having a period. Basic knowledge of a woman's menstrual/ovulation cycle is a must if you don't want to have a baby just yet.
