I've only been dating my boyfriend for three and a half months. I'm unemployed, barely a student, on disability, and hadn't planned on having children until I was married and healthy... Thus my use of birth control pills, used perfectly and never forgotten, since I'm on several time-sensitive medications and had an alarm to remind me every day.
So hoooow in the heck did I still manage to become pregnant still? It's beyond me, but I'm oddly at peace with it. I feel like things happen for a reason, and everything will work out in the end. In fact, my mom conceived me while on BC pills.
So here's the question -- how many of you became pregnant while on BC, and how long did it take you to realize that you were?
I was just lurking around and saw this, I got pregnant in 2006 while on Tricyclen Lo. It was just before starting my 4th pack when I realize I hadn't had my offf week period. Got a test, didn't even tell anyone, really didn't expect it to be positive, just wanted to rule it out before I started my next pack.. Barely finished peeing on it and it was blazingly positive.
For me, I feel it happened because she is meant to be here with me and 5 years later I wouldn't ever trade her for anything. Named her Rachel and I tell her all the time she is my "Rae" of sunshine It took me a couple days to come to terms with it, wasn't a good time for a new baby but, having had 2 kids before her, I knew that this time next year when she is here and only a couple months old I would already not be able to imagine my life without her..
Oh hunny I'm part of that 1% I took my BC religiously. Mainly bc I am in the middle of a divorce and we are allowed to see other ppl... well I was seeing someone and I'm pretty sure he had super sperm bc... here I am 5 weeks pregnant with his kiddo... I am at peace with it now but when I found out... I literally cried for 2 days straight... but EVERYTHING does happen for a reason and life goes on...

Yea I'm in the same EXACT boat! Been dating my guy for only a month and here I am 4 weeks pregnant.
And I too am part of that one percent.
