pregnant on birth control?

I use the Nuva Ring.. I'm curious if anyone here has gotten pregnant while using it? I had my period last week and put in the new ring on Saturday. I was sick all weekend and now I'm nauseous(sp?) can't eat and have been for 2 days. If you got preg. on birth control, how did you know you were preg? Thanks for any help, no bashing please just trying to figure this out!

  • It is always possible to get pregnant as birth control is not 100% effective. When in doubt, take a test.

  • How long have you been using the NuvaRing? Is it possible that that is what is making you sick?

  • I didn't get pregnant while using the NuvaRing but it did make me very nauseous after the first couple weeks. It could just be a side effect.

  • If you just had your period last week it is unlikely that you are preggers...Maybe its just the flu?? Feel better and good luck
