I say yes and he says no.

  My guy and I got into a debate last night. I'm on BC and have been for three years now. I never miss a pill and I take it at the same time every day. Thus far it's never failed me. He says that I can't get pregnant while on my period and using BC. I say I can.

 Summery of how it went: He told me that because I'm on BC and my period. I cannot get pregnant. I told him that I could still get pregnant. It's that time of the month for me and I'm on the sugar pill part. I'm in the middle of it as well. I can get pregnant on BC and I can get pregnant while on my period. Also I told him that I can get pregnant when we use a condom (I have an 11yr old because of a condom failing). He and I continued to debate over the subject for a while before he just rolled his eyes and gave up.

 What do you think? Am I right?

Yes you're right. 99% effective doesn't mean 100% effective. tell him to go back and take some middle school math classes.

So your argument is that the sugar week makes you fertile? No. The pill is a certain percent effective period.. no matter which day you have sex.

The chances of you getting pregnant while on BC are the same whether you are on your period or not

I used the pill for a combined total of six years...and am currently 19w4d pregnant, with no missed pills. Due to a crazy work schedule I did get off on my times, and I guess that was enough. So yes, you can get pregnant at any time. Yes, you are right.

I never got pregnant on the pill, and I'm pretty sure that you're no more fertile on the sugar pills than you are on the other ones (though I could be wrong), but the pill isn't 100%. When BC isn't 100% (which none are), you can get pregnant. It's a little disturbing that he's having sex without being more educated about birth control.
