getting pregnant while on the pill?

I missed a few pills earlier in the month when i went away for the weekend and forgot them. But i wondered if i was to get pregnant on the pill how would i know. I mean i wouldn't know for a while and in the mean time i will still be taking my pill. I'm just confused to know what would happen and how i would know and if it would cause me to lose the baby. Please if any one has gotten pregnant on the pill help me thanks.. i'm sure i am not pregnant but you never know.

  • I got pregnant on the pill. I didn't have my period the week that I was supposed to so I took a HPT which showed positive. I stopped taking the pills, and went to the OB/GYN. I had a beautifu, healthy baby girl so the pills that I did take had no effect on her. In a situation like yours, I have stopped taking my pills for the month and just got back on when I started my period again. Good luck! :-)

  • I got pregnant with my son while on the depo shot, two years later, I got pregnant with my daughter on the pill. Neither of my children had any problems, nor did I have any problems during my pregnancy. I now have a Mirena IUD and thankfully have not gotten pregnant on it.
