  • I never did, and I was on it for 8 years. I got off the pill and we used condoms for a few months and then I got pregnant our 1st month of TTC. I think that most women who claim to have gotten pregnant while on the pill just weren't using it right!

  • #3 was a pill baby. but I ended up going on another medication (for ovarian tumours) that counteracted the pill and made me hyperfertile. (2 different dr's - my regular and a locum)

    It was over christmas so I didn't think anything of what I look back on now and totally recognize as being pregnancy symptoms but blamed on the holidays. we all gain weight and get cranky right? lol

    it was after chrismtas and a routine blood test I got the oddest phone call from my dr telling me what they found. best little surprise I've EVER had.

  • My best friend got pregnant on the pill. She had no idea she was until the 3rd month when she went in because she was bleeding heavily. They told her she was pregnant, miscarrying one baby but still had it's twin with a heartbeat going strong.He is now 3!

  • Yep! Sure did!

    Listen when they tell you to take it at the SAME TIME every day; they're not lying about that!!!! I slept in very late one weekend and a month & a half later I was puking in the parking lot on my way into work! So as Blueliner said; most of the time it's because the pill taker made some sort of error; however I wouldn't have assumed a few hours would be a big difference; I normally woke around 6 for work and 8 on the weekend; but that weekend both days I slept til noon or something; and that's the only thing I can come up with.

    One of my co-workers said maybe your preg. No; I couldn't be...that was Monday. By the end of the week my boobs were soo tender I HAD to take a test just to rule it out...ummm well that didn't work! ROFL

    The important thing is if you suspect your preg to stop taking the pills asap. IDK for sure; but I think there's a possibility they could cause a miscarriage.

  • I was on the pill and I am pregnant right now.. .with twins... because the ER doc put me on penicillin and didn't tell me it would make the pill ineffective.

  • I did. But I will admit that I was bad about forgetting it and not taking it at the right times.
