  • A couple years ago I got pregnant on the Depo. I knew bc I had missed my period, and was feeling really sick. I ended up miscarrying though within the 2 month.

  • i got pregnant with my last child with an iud, i had a very bad backache and thought I had a bladder infection but it turns out I was pregnant and experiencing ligament stretching, my periods were irregular for the year i had it so and its supposed to be the most effective birth control so i didn't think of it as a possibility but had I not had a lot of pain who knows how long I would have waited to test LOL With my first child I was on the pill but was very good at taking it and I tested when I began getting nauseous and was 3 days late

  • I got pregnant while on the pill and nursing full time (even though my dr told me that it was almost impossible) I never had a period after giving birth to my first because I was nursing...I just 'KNEW' was very tough to be pregnant with an infant and post partum...but looking back now I'm so glad that I have my littlest guy :)

  • I got pregnant with my daughter while on "the pill". I was very, very good at taking my pills just like I was saposed to. I have quite a few friends who got pregnant while on the pill as well. I have had an IUD now for 5 years ,and so pregnancy.

  • I am currently pregnant after being on the pill. I always took the pill exactly as directed and I hadn't had a period for 4 months prior to becoming pregnant. I was very shocked when I realized I might be pregnant. My initial symptoms were back ache, headache, sore breasts (very sore!) and I was so tired I would fall asleep the second I sat down.
