I'm pregnant, and I was on the pill. I've been working a huge amount of over time, and I guess I forgot to take one, or my body is more sensitive to having to take it exactly on time than I realized. Yes, I was very surprised, and not pleasantly.

I don't use bc but my mom got pregnant while on the pill. She missed 2 pills and that's how it happened.

My friend did, but that's because she was on antibiotics and she was never told it makes the pill useless while you're on the antibiotics.

I'm too forgetful to even think about that form of bc, lol.

I used it for 6 years with no side effects, and no pregnancy, then my schedule blew up. I'm an RN, usually I work days, but since we are short, I've been working more than 12 hours sometimes, and not just days. There were a few all nights, and then split shifts (from noon to midnight, 3 to 3, that sort of thing) and with that, there were a few times I'd take my pill 12 hours late, give or take a few hours, and I guess that was enough, because every test I've taken is positive. I also got to find out, not by a missed period, but by ending up in the ER after a car wreck. Let me tell you, that was a fun day.
