  • I did with my first. I took some antibiotics though and never took my medication at the same time. Worked like a charm before that :)

  • no. i didnt get pregnant on pill.

    its very unlikey to get pregnant when you take the bc pill right.

    i dont know any women who got pregnant on pill. and if so, they usually didnt take it right. Even one missed pill will harm the effect of it.

  • I took mine at the same exact time every single day, no other medication to interfere with it and WHAM! 7 pregnancies despite it!! I had one "on purpose" pregnancy. Lost 5 and got 3 kids from it all.....I am done!

  • My friend's friend took the pill faithfully...Same time every day, used other precautions when on antibiotics and is pregnant with Quads (she might have had them by now) Two sets of identical twins. So yes its very possible.
