  • YES I DID! MY DENTIST ASKED WHAT MEDS I WAS ON AND TOLD HER BIRTH CONTROL AND AN ANTIBIOTIC FOR MY SKIN. SHE TOLD ME THAT THE BIRTH CONTROL WOULDNT WORK WITH ANTIBIOTICS. I HAD NO IDEA.... AND A WEEK LATER I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGNANT!!

  • A friend of mine works with a lady who took the pill like clockwork and now she is about due with 4 babies (two sets of identical twins). All these babies while taking birth control pills.

  • I got pregnant on Seasonale. I miscarried at 5 weeks. As far as the women on here who were conceived on the pill, remember, the pill has changed dramatically over the last 20 or 30 years. No method is 100%, even when taken perfectly.
