  • I've heard that can happen if you are on antibiotics while on the pill. The antibiotics make the pill less effective. Some things are meant to be. I wasnt supposed to get pregnant- had my 3rd surgery scheduled for endrometriosis when I got a call saying the surgery was cancelled b/c I was pregnant. That was the best surprise I ever got! Good Luck.

  • Nope, I took the pill for about 6 years with no problem. I stopped and waited about 6 months to start trying to conceive, then it took over a year to get pregnant...and three pregnancies for it to stick (I was prone to early miscarriage). I don't think the pills had anything to do with any of that though... my doc said I have a low progesterone level.
