  • Yes you def can be preg!! I took the pill religiously & got preg! Nothing is 100% effective-except abstinence-& where's the fun in that?

  • i would keep taking it because if you are not pregnant and you stop taking it and continue to have sex, you will get pregnant.

  • I have a friend who got pregnant while on the pill and her hubby had a condom on. Yeah, you can get pregnant!

  • You very well could be pregnant, but you don't want to risk it any more if you aren't. Keep taking the pill if you miss your period take a test. They have yet to prove that taking the pill while very early pregnant will cause any damage. If it was a one time thing and you weren't near an ovulation then you should in therory be fine. Heck if your like me you could go 9 months with no sort of protection, just the pull out method and not get pregnant till you actually want to start up the pill again! Just be more careful next time and try to remember to take the pill.

  • You definately can. I got pregnant on the pill not once, but twice...the first ended in a m/c.
