Yup.  I was almost 19, on the pill for 3 complete bc packs and I got pregnant.  Took those pills like clockwork.  Don’t ask me what went wrong.  I wasn’t on any meds that would interfere with it.  My Dr. said sex after a month was fine and we decided to wait a little longer to be safe.  So much for that.  I’m sure that I’m pretty much the exception to the rule. 

But, we have a beautiful daughter and then had 3 more handsome boys and we’re so thrilled.

Ah… sorry to do this to you… but I’ve gotten pregnant on the pill twice. >_< The first one ended up as a miscarriage. I’m so anal too, so I never miss a day! We’re using the pill and condoms now, b’cuz we really can’t afford another child just yet.

I’ve been on the pill for over seven years and have never come close to being pregnant. πŸ™‚ We don’t use any other type of protection either.

It’s very rare, so says my gyno! I think you’ll find that many many more women do NOT get pregnant while religiously taking the pill. My high school best friend is allergic to latex and all the pills she tried messed up her body, so they use the “pull-out” method. They haven’t gotten pregnant yet, and it’s been 6 years.

@mrsBtoBee: I’ve been on the pill for almost 7 years and sexually active with my now Fiance the whole time.

I am pretty good about taking it, but have definitely missed a day and taken 2 the next day or been on antibiotics while taking it etc. We have never used an additional form or protection with the pill. I also get sore & irritated with condoms.

I have never gotten pregnant and my period has never been late.

I’ve switched brands a few times and have never had any issues.

The pill is 99.9% effective that means there is a 0.1% chance that you will get pregnant on it. Meaning 1/1000 women will get pregnant on the pill.

 

By asking your question the way you did, you are asking people who DID get pregnant while on the pill to respond (rather than those who didn’t).

@mrsBtoBee: Definitely play it safe. I have gotten MUCH better about taking the pill religiously and not having sex while on antibiotics until after my period and starting my next pack of pills, but in college I was very lax with the pill taking.

I’d take them every day, but often at different times of day (usually in the evening) or first thing the next morning.

I still don’t have a specific time of day I take it, I just take my pill every night right before bed.

Now that I’m basically 8 months out from my wedding I’m being SUPER careful, because now is DEFINITELY not the time for a baby.

There’s quite a variety of birth control options- talk to your gyno! There’s a patch, a shot, the nuvaring, that little t shaped things (I forget what it’s called but the gyno places it up by your cervix- it’s a long term thing).
A lot of the other options are just as effective or nearly just as effective. But, with anything… there’s always the outliers who will get pregnant, even with perfect use. If you’ve very concerned it’s best to do a hormonal birth control and a barrier method (maybe you could get fitted for a diaphram?)

I got pregant while on the pill, but it ended up in miscarriage.  But, I was taking antibiotics at the time, so I know what went wrong. 

I switched to Nuvaring for 3 reasons:

  1. I didn’t have to worry about taking them at the same time
  2. Because you’re not ingesting the hormones, antibiotics and other medications are less likely to interfere
  3. (TMI) If anything, it helps to keep your more lubricated down there.
