The birth control could not have enough time to enter the bloodstream before it exits the body. In these instances, it is easier for the woman to become pregnant even when she took the birth control on time.
For women who are trying to avoid becoming pregnant, taking birth control is one of the most effective options. In fact, when taken correctly, it is typically 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. However, there are times when a woman could become pregnant when she is taking birth control. Here is some more information to keep in mind. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
The most common reason that a woman becomes pregnant while on birth control is because she simply wasn’t taking it as she should. It’s possible that she missed a pill or two along the way or that she wasn’t being consistent with the time she took the pill. When you are taking a birth control pill, it is important that you take it at the same time every day. This will help make it the most effective and eliminate your chances of becoming pregnant.
If you do happen to miss taking a pill, it is best to talk to your health care provider. Sometimes you can take one later in the day, but other times it is best to simply wait until the next day and then take two. This will all depend on the specific type of pill you are taking. In these situations, it is sometimes a good idea to take supplemental birth control until you start a new packet the next month.
It is also possible for a woman to become pregnant while taking birth control if she is suffering from a health condition or two. For example, if you are sick and have been vomiting, it is possible to vomit the birth control up before it becomes effective. It takes about 30 minutes for it to absorb into your bloodstream, so if you become sick before it has had time to go through this process, you may become pregnant if you have intercourse later on.
In addition to this, women who have issues with diarrhea, may also have this same problem. The birth control could not have enough time to enter the bloodstream before it exits the body. In these instances, it is easier for the woman to become pregnant even when she took the birth control on time.
So, while birth control is highly effective, there are circumstances that could lead to a woman becoming pregnant while she is taking it. The best thing you can do is to take your pills correctly and to use alternate forms of birth control if you aren’t certain that the pill is working properly.
