@NovaGrey:  Future Mother-In-Law got pregnant with Fiance on bc. Obviously this is many many years ago so things have changed, lol. But yeah he beat the odds!

Best friend’s cousin got pregnant while on BC. It’s definitely possible (but at the same time also statistically not super common, so don’t everybody freak out! haha)

@NovaGrey:  I knew a girl who birth control pills, depo, and mirena didn’t work for. Unfortunately her doctor’s didn’t realize this until she had a 3,2, and 1 year old at the age of 20. Since then she’s had her tubes tied, so far she has not been pregnant again.

I know a couple of people who got pregnant while on BC when they used antibiotics as well. My mother got pregnant with my brother while on BC, too, but that was in 1981.

Yep. Best friend got pregnant while with her Boyfriend or Best Friend – always took them at the same time every day. Only had sex once that month, and ended up pregnant. Needless to say, she was in total shock! It can happen, but it’s not all TOO common. Take a test and keep us posted!

My best friend has an 18 month old, the product of BC failure.  She never missed a pill, but was on an antibiotic for about a week prior to his conception.  They’re now intentionally trying for #2!

My ex and his brother were both pill babies.  My old roommate got pregnant on the pill as well, but she had been on a two week course of antibiotics.

I only know of one but I have a hard time believing her (lots of partying, drinking, generally irresponsibleness, and she has a terrible memory). Now five years after having her child, she thought she was somehow “immune” to getting pregnant. Guess who got pregnant again?

@NovaGrey:  What symptoms make you think you’re pregnant and when is your period/withdrawl bleeding due?

My mom had her tubes tied before she got pregnant with me, lol. Anything is possible.

well, are these people taking the pill at the same time every day? and they didnt take any antibiotics (known to interfere with bc)?
