Did Your Birth Control Fail?

Anybody have any surprise babies? Were you using some sort of contraception, but got pregnant anyway? What were you using, and any ideas on how you may have gotten pregnant anyway, or were you just that .01% that they can't guarantee won't get pregnant?

  • YES!
    We were using condoms & BC pill like they were going out of style! .... Turns out our little man is the BEST surprise we could ever ask for! (even though we really, REALLY didn't want kids. I was 17 & dh was 19.)

  • Nope. Took the patch correctly and only got pregnant with son when I wanted too. I am on the mirena and so far no.

  • No, both of my kids were planned. When I was on birth control, I was so paranoid that we used two different types, just to have a backup.

  • Yes! I was on the low dose pill. I had been on it for several years with no problems. I took it every night at the same time and never missed a day. I had an alarm set on my cell phone so i wouldnt forget it. So I guess I was one of the rare few.
