  • I got pregnant with both of my boys while I was on the pill. The first I wasn't consistent with taking it, never the same time, because my DD was a newborn. The 2nd, I was on Alesse pills and I tried for 2 months to tell the doctor that I didn't think they were working right and his nurse kept telling me to wait it out and BOOM I was pregnant!

  • YES 3 times
    My first I got pregnant on the depo. I wasn't never told to wait 2 weeks but I miscarried
    My 2nd (my daughter) I had the nerouplant (now off the market...)
    My 3rd (my son) I was on the pill and I did take it every day at the exact same time, never missed a day

    Found out after I had my son that hormonal BC probably doesn't work for me since I keep getting pregnant off of it.

  • I haven't but I know someone that is pregnant with baby #5. She was on some form of BC every time! This time, she's getting her tubes tied after delivery.
