Has anyone ever gotten pregnant while on Birth Control Pills?

I'm a couple weeks late. I have taken pregnancy tests, but they're negative. I honestly don't want anymore kids. I just want to know why I'm late.

  • People get pregnant on BC all the time... thats why they never say 100% accuracy.

  • I got pregnant off of the mini pill. Yes I did take every day, never skipped it once, and I toke it at the very same time every night (I had an alarm set on my cell)
    Well if you got negative tests for being weeks late something else might be up. How long have you been taking the,. I was told my my doctor after a couple years of taking them or even some BC pills your period will eventually just stop. Maybe make an appointment ith your doctor and address your concern.

  • My mom did with me, never missed a pill or a period, she was 5mo when she found out.

  • I did, never missed a pill. I think they're 98% dependable, so that means that 2 out of every 100 women who take them correctly, will still get pregnant.
