is this common?

I exclusively breastfed my daughter on the breast day and night on command (every 2-3 hrs).

After3 months of this I started my period. I began taking a low dose form of oral birth control prescribed by my doctor who knew I was nursing and assured me it was safe.

I took this pill at the same time everyday never missing or taking it late. However I still became pregnant when my daughter was 5 months old. I continued to nurse until my doctor told me to stop because it was not safe. Is it common for these things to happen while nursing?
