Maybe pregnant?

I`m on the pill, but this last month I took it late (but did`nt miss any days) a few 8 hours late. I am having some possible early pregnancy signs. Have any of you ever gotten pregnant because of taking pills late?

  • I haven't had this happen but it's very possible. If you read the directions on the pills (which apparently you didn't) it clearly states that your risk of pregnancy increases if not taken correctly.

  • It's possible but I would even miss a couple days in a row and never ended up pregnant. It took NINE months after going off BC Pills to concieve and only TWO months after going off Mirena to concieve.

  • I got pregnant while on the pill. It is never 100% even if taken like clock work.
