  • i've used the pill for years and it's always worked for me. it's only as effective as the info. pamphlet claims when taken at the EXACT same time every day. even being late by a few hrs can mess up some brands. all my pregnancies were while i was purposely off the pill to TTC.

  • The pill worked. Condoms always do. There really is no reason for you to get pregnant if you take the pill EVERY day. Birth control worked for me .

  • Our youngest is now 19 months old...I got the paraguard IUD at my 6 week PP check up. In Nov of last year I developed an infection from it, and had to have it removed. Couldn't get another one, so I got Yaz. I've had IUD's since my 2nd baby was born (almost 6 years ago) so I had kinda forgotten all the little intricate details about pills. Started the pack in December when I got my period. I got sick in January and was prescribed antibiotics. Doc idn't say anything to me, and I sure didn't remember. Now that i'm pregnant and we can go back and look at the dates, I was ovulating during the time I was taking the antbiotics. And now hereI we are. Almost 8 weeks prego.

    So...it was kind of a birth control failure, and also not, because you're supposed to abstain or use backup if you take antibiotics. I guess you would say it was a combo birth control and user failure.
