  • Yes, I had moved from the shot to the pill and had been on the pill for about six months when I got pregnant with our younger daughter.

  • My niece did three times. It seems her hormones are so out of whack when she goes on the pill it makes her fertile. The first one was unplanned. The next two were planned. Imagine going on the pill TO get pregnant.

  • I got pregnant at 17 with my oldest while on the pill, my birth control had to be changed and when it did I got pregnant. Then I went on the Noraplant for the full 5 years, had it removed and got pregnant with my oldest DD, went on depo for 6 years and had to have surgery, the doctor took me off depo and put me on the pill, and bam pregnant once again, then I was breast feeding and on the mini pill and got pregnant with my last DD. Miss furtle Murtle is what they call me. I had my tubes tied and when the told me there was still a 1 and 500 chance I could still get pregnant I cried!

  • I did, damn those antibiotics!! The doctor neglected to tell me about the antibiotics cancelling out the BC. My cousin got pregnant on BC twice...ended up being allergic to birth control and had her tubes tied instead of risking it again.

  • if you got pregnant on the pill did you end up getting your period? how did you know you were pregnant?

  • My mom did twice.

    The first time she was given a cough medicine by her doctor and it made her birth control inaffective. Doctor told her after she got a positive test that it can happen.

    The second time she was on an antibiotic and had used back up birth control while on it but she thought she was safe once she quit taking it. But she wasn't. They said the antibiotics stay in your system for up to 10 days after you stop taking it so when she thought she was safe she wasn't, her body ovulated and she got pregnant.
