  • I got preg with dd within one month after stopping the patch. She was a SURPRISE. Lol. I was taking a month in between & planning on switching back to the pill from the patch as the patch was irritating me. I had previously been on the pill for years. With my son, I was STILL ON the pill! No antibiotics, no missed pills, took every scheduled pill every day at the same time!! Haha. I had been on it since having my dd and got preg with my son who is 11 mo now. It was a blessing of course. I wanted to be pregnant, but my dh hadn't given the ok to stop the pill yet.

  • I got pregnant while still on the pill...not the greatest timing, but she is our miracle.
