2 Bumps

should i still ttc while taking the pill?

my doctor put me on a low dose of birth control pills to try for 2 months just to regulate my cycle..do you think it will be safe to still try while taking the pills? or should i try to prevent it by using protection until the 2 months is up? I am taking them only because my cycle has been so irregular and we do want to have a baby and its been hard timing ovulation.

  • Your best bet is to call and ask your doctor. They'd be the most knowlegable about the type of BC you are on.

  • Yeah, I'm in agreement with skittles1108; the pill will prevent you from conceiving. It is a form of CONTRAception...

  • Yeah I cant imagine that it will help you to conceive, with the pill and all, and there may be side effects to getting pregnant while on it, I would research the birth control you are using and make sure that it doesnt lead to any defects or anything. Although I think that most babies that are conceived while mom is on birth control turn out fine.

  • i guess what i mean..is..would it be safe to have unprotected sex..in the event i did get pregnant while on bc pills, could it harm a baby? Or should we be using protection

  • birth control might make it a little hard to get pregnant......most people get on the pill so they dont have to use protection...

  • there is still a slight chance you could get pregnant but there is also a chance the pill could make you miscarry or cause birth defects if you did get pregnant

  • Could this be the "mini pill" that women get when they are breast feeding? If so, it is still possible to get pregnant. My doctor gave me the mini pill and recommended I use another form of birth control also.

  • I would wait to try to concieve. The pill could cause miscarriage which could again throw off your period and ovulation cycle.
