  • well, they say if u dont take a pill then use a condom. i would go out and see if u can still get plan b or some sort of EC if u dont want to get pregnant.

  • The answer to that one is YES!! It is very possible to get pregnant just by missing or not taking the pill for one day. Was this intentional or did you just forget or ran out of the pills?

  • Sweetheart you can get pregnant and you can also get pregnant when you are still on the pill... remember abstenance is the sure way of not getting pregnant. I know this bc my best friends mom has 3 kids Jason 36, Robert 26, Stephanie 23. guess which one was a birthcontrol baby... Jason & Stephanie. kinda puts things in perspective doesnt it. im getting one of those IUD implants bc i forget everything

  • Yes you can...do you know when you were ovulating? you can use a ovulation calculator & remember sperm can also live 7-8 days inside.. Here is a link to the calculator... http://www.webmd.com/content/tools/1/calc_ovulation.htm
    Good luck!

  • Yes. I stopped taking BC pills and my hubby and I had sex that weekend. That's how I got pregnant with my little boy

  • You can but the BC is probably still in your system so it would probably be harder. I am not a personal believer in the pill only because there are so many pill babies out there...my oldest stepson included.

  • Do a pregnancy test. They show pretty early. It's dangerous to take bc pills if you are pregnant so you need to find out ASAP!
