Getting pregnant was a little different for me, almost 4 years ago (@ 24 yrs old) I suffered a severe blood clot in my leg as a side effect from birth control that I had taken for several years. As a result of that I was told that I cannot EVER use any type of BC that contains hormones, since I had been in a long term relationship with my SO, we figured...whatever happens, happens. Well 3 1/2 years passed, we never used protection...and I never got pregnant. I have always had very irregular menstrual cycles so when my cycle was late last October I thought it was just another irregularity, come to find out I was pregnant! I found out right before Halloween and couldn't have been happier! Considering I am high risk (diabetic) I did have my reservations, but everything has been great. Anyway, that's my story. Unplanned but very exciting to say the least!

I got pregnant from the ol pull and pray. Although it worked for about 4 years. My grandmother had passed away on the 27th of april and I got pregnant on the 1st or 2nd of may and it made me think Grandma is playing games with me...LOL

He never got close. When I was done, he stopped.

I was on the mini-pill while BFing my son, and didn't realize that you had to take it within an hour of the same time every day.

I'm on the pill, thyroid issues and refused to use condoms since I was allergic to them. I would always pee right after sex to reduce our chances even more and with his age (58), I really didn't think it would be possible for us but I always knew there was that chance. Of course it would happen to me. So here I sit, waiting for my first doctors appt tomorrow at 10:15.

I have health issues (high blood pressure, asthma, diabetic) so I'm not sure how this is going to play out. I'm scared to death becuase if the doctor says my body can't handle it, I'm going to have to make a choice but I also can't afford to be bed ridden for 9 months.

Absolutely zero protection... my DD's father was the first guy I'd ever been with, & I was hella naive... "oh, the DR told me I can't have kids" ... I seriously fell for that... but we did do pull & pray, & it worked for 6 months!

Boy was I shocked & pissed when I found out he COULD have kids (not cause of the pregnancy, but the lie)... I swear I would've made him unable.

My oldest was a result of GHB being slipped in my drink at 15.

My Mirena was not inserted right although she claims it was knocked loose during sex.

I was told I was infertile due to progesterone issues (I took clomid for 4 months and never ovulated once). My ex and I tried off and on for probably 6 years with no bfp. I lost 85lbs, slept with my ex one drunken night and got pregnant.

I was very, very ill about a week earlier and it turns out that I must have vomited (TMI, I know) out alot of the hormones from my birth control pills, so I did ovulate. My husband and I are still happy to be starting our family, though
