It's looking like I might be....eek!! I know I shouldn't be freaking out yet, I just have been experiencing some things and just have a feeling. I'm due for my period next week. All of this was bringing up some curiosity, I was just wondering how many of you got pregnant while on the pill.

I got pregnant with my son while on birth control and it wasn't even an oops! I took the pill at the same time every day and never missed. I guess some things are just meant to happen!

When I was 18 I got pregnant while taking the pill religiously.  Apparently I was in the 3% that no matter how perfectly you take it oops. I got asked all sorts of questions about things that could make in ineffective though... cold/flu, antibiotics, not taking it at exactly the same time, diarrhea, vomiting, certin medicines or vitamins, the list seemed to go on. I was amazed at all the little things that could mess it up. I know quite a few other people who got pregnant while on it as well.

I choose not to have that baby. My son was planned though and happened extremely quickly.

Yeah I take it at the same time every night, too. Sometimes I get a hour behind :\ but never more than that! But I just have a feeling. Not that it would be the WORST thing in the world...just not MY plan right now.

I got pregnant while on the pill when my oldest was 3 months old. I had a miscarriage which my dr. said could be because of the birth control. I have not taken birth control pills since.

I wasn't on the pill but I wasn't trying to get pregnant. I just wasn't trying very hard NOT to get pregnant. Don't worry yourself too much about it. Have you been taking the pill correctly? Have you started any medications that can affect the pill?? If you take it right you just shouldnt get pregnant... it's like 99.9% effective. If you've skipped a few pills then you know. Might be a little concerned lol.

I think a lot of people forget that the pill isn't 100% because everyone always asks if someone else has gotten pregant on birth control!!! As for me no I haven't guess I'm not one of the 0.1-20%

Nah I know it's not 100%, especially when I forget to take it on time and take it an hour late. That's always on the back of my mind. I'm less concerned than I am curious. Knowing that it's a possibilty that I am pregnant made me wonder how common it really is, because it seems more common to me than statistics say...although I'm sure those statistics are based on women who take it correctly at the same time everyday and are not on any meds that could effect it.  Meh....whatever I was just wondering.
