  • BC will fail due to being on antibiotic's, and other medications taken while taking BC or not being taken properly. I.E. Same time everyday. BC is NOT 100% effective 100% of the time. Only not have sex at all is 100% effective at preventing pregnancy.

  • I got pregnant during the week you stop taking birth control (when your supposed to start bleeding) And we used a condom too, so double protection and I still got pregnant lol! Huge shock, but I'm so happy with my son now :) And yes I'm terrified of having sex now just in case history repeats itself!

  • I got pregnant on the pill with DS and depo with DD. Mirena was the only thing that worked for me.

  • bdfly, how did you know your depo failed, because my 2nd depo took away my period, and i got nervous so i tested once and it was negative, now my shot was in January and i havent had a period since, it makes me nervous because that didn't happen with my first depo shot and they were not even given back to back, i missed a shot in the middle.

  • I got pregnant on the minipill while breastfeeding (yes, I was taking it at the same time everyday). I hadn't gotten my period back yet after having my 2nd baby so my only clue was that I was throwing up every day, several times/day.

  • Yeah I dont know the whole story behind my BF son but when I got pregnant I was not on any other kind of medication and was taking it at the same time every day...I don't know what happened! I am on a high dose pill now but we still worry
