  • I did, too. But I was told at 15 that I would never have kids. My insides had fallen. They put me on half strength pill to regulate my periods. Guess what? I had a girl. With my second, I missed a couple of pills. Wouldn't trade either one of them, tho. They were truly a gift.

  • I got pregnant on TriCyclen Lo (however you spell it) and no I didn't miss any pills and took them at the same time every day.. Also got pregnant on Depo Provera! My fiance is 70% Sterile and no we haven't used BC since we were hoping it would happen.. and it did! I think I'm just a very fertile person. The only BC I've used and it worked for 2 1/2 years was the Mirena. I will be getting that again after my DD is born =)

  • It's so easy with the pill... antibiotics mess with it and also I think if you are over 160lbs it has a higher chance of failing. Plus taking it at different times. I've never used it. That being said, I got pregnant using the non-hormonal IUD. I'm on Mirena now. Here's to better luck lol

  • i got pregnant on the pill. Very shocking and not a good time. I ended up having a miscarriage. It is rare to get PG, but it can happen.

  • my first was a bc pill baby. i was taking it exactly like i was suppose to but hey, thats why they say its 99.9% affective and not 100% haha. plus i was overweight so it doesnt work quite as well, or so ive heard.
