Can You Get Pregnant on Birth Control?

If you're taking birth control pills to prevent pregnancy, check out these 3 reasons why you can get pregnant on birth control.

Birth control pills are very popular for preventing pregnancy and regulating periods. They are easy to take, inexpensive and cause very few side effects. They are a very popular option for many women. When you use them correctly, birth control pills can be up to 99.9% effective. However, no birth control method (besides abstinence!) is completely effective, and, it is, in fact, possible to get pregnant while on birth control. Today, we are going to discuss some of the possible reasons that women on birth control get pregnant. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Forgetting Your Pill

Of course, this is probably the most common issue that occurs with birth control pills. You have to make sure to take the pill every single day, and missing a pill can cause you to become pregnant. Same thing goes for taking the pill at different times every day. You really need to try as hard as you can to make sure to take the pill at around the same time every day. This can be difficult, but try setting an alarm to remind you.

Drug Interactions

Sometimes, being on other meds can affect the, well, effectiveness of birth control pills. This is most common in antibiotics, but can happen with other pills such as anti-seizure meds or anti-fungal meds. Also, but more rarely, this has happened with herbs and vitamins as well. Make sure to talk with your doctor if you are on any new medications so that you can see how they might interact with your birth control pill. Make sure to use a back up method while on any medications that might interfere with your birth control as well.

Being Sick

If you are sick and throw up within 30 minutes of taking your birth control pill, you could potentially get pregnant. The reason for this? Birth control pills take up to 30 minutes to be absorbed into your system. If this happens, you might want to contact your doctor to see about using a backup method, or also to find out if you should take another dose of your pill or wait.

These are the three most common reasons as to why people get pregnant while on birth control. If you are trying to conceive, you need to go off of birth control as soon as possible. It can potentially cause problems if you get pregnant while still taking birth control. If you are trying to get pregnant after going off of the pill, be patient. It can take a while for some women to get back to their regular cycle and fertile state after going off of birth control.

    I had unprotected sex right when I started my new cycle of pills. That was about a month ago. I usually get my period after taking my second sugar pill. I took my second sugar pill last night and my period hasn’t come yet. Should I be worried? I haven’t missed a day taking my bcp since I had unprotected sex. How soon will I know if I’m pregnant or not?

    i had sex with my boyfriend last night and for the first time he came inside of me, after sex i took my birth control which would start me on them again after being off of them for about a month, i took another birth control pill this morning around 9:30 and by noon i was throwing up at work. take into detail all i had was coffee and water to drink and a carrot and a slice of salami to eat around 10am.. so is there a chance im pregnant or just having a bad reaction to the birth control?

    I am on birth control pills and i have missed pills here and there but took them when i remembered. My boyfriend has ejaculated in me and at times i do take my pill late instead of always taking on time. Could I be pregnant? I was going to wait til Valentines Day to take a pregnancy test and see if i get my period.

    I’ve been on the pill since 2012. Last week( my week 3 pills.) I missed 3 pills: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.I had unprotected sex on Wednesday, that’s when I noticed I had missed my pills. I doubled up, I took Monday and Tuesday’s pill. The next day I doubled up again taking Wednesday and Thursday. I was supposed to get my period the following Wednesday, it is now Sunday and I still haven’t gotten my period. I took a test on Thursday, the 1st day after my missed period and it was negative. Am I most likely pregnant? Is it too early for a positive test, since I only had unprotected sex over a week ago?

    My husband and I have 3 girls which if anything has been hard to Not get pregnant.
    i just started the birth control pill, the Sunday after i started my last period (which was last week)
    I set an alarm to take it at 11am every day, however this can be a busy time with my young girls at home with me (nap and lunch time) so I was trying to slowly push the time back after the first couple pills from 11-2. After the first week in accordance with the pills we had unprotected sex but then i started spotting the next day. Immediately i am worried about pregnancy of course and wondering if my taking it a little later could have upset it’s effectiveness. Or was a week possibly not long enough on the pill?
