Hubby and I have been together for 6 years...married for 4. When we first got married, we decided no kids for a couple years. We wanted to get some work experience under our belt first and have a stable job, a stable house, a nice, strong support system from our family. So I went on the pill. Crazy enough, I got pregnant anyway. 8 weeks into it, when hubby and I decided it was something we could handle, we lost the baby. We felt it was God's way of telling us it may still not be the right time so I went back to my OB and she put me on a stronger dose of BC. It worked for a while then I got pregnant again. Now we've only got 28 days left till this little boy graces us with his presence!

Has anyone else experienced a pregnancy while on BC?

Congrats on the pregnancy.
My sister is pregnant right now, 17 weeks along and also got pregnant while being on the pill. My mom did with me as well.
She found out when she was already 12 weeks along.

I know a lot of people that have had this happen. But you have to remember if you get sick and take medicine it decreases the effect of your BC for a period of time. Along with many other things that people come in contact with. If it is something you are having a problem with avoid having sex when on any kind of medications and look into other things that may have an effect on your specific BC that you around often.

Yep. I just found out i'm pregnant and i've been on the pill for the past year. I've been in a state of shock for the last 4 days. DH & I already have 4 kids and weren't planning on anymore. He is not very happy about the pregnancy and I feel really sad because I don't even feel like I can talk about with him
