called me saying tests were positive?

User Profile
I was sleeping with a girl and she started taking Lo Estrin birth control after we started sleeping together. She is also on depression medicine. She had her period and we had sex while she was on one of her last days. We had sex once again afterwards if memory serves me correctly. She called me to tell me she was feeling bad and took two ClearBlue (I believe) tests and called me saying they were positive. Her doctor told her that since she had just started taking those birth control pills that the positives may be false. Her doctor appointment isn\\\\\\\'t for several weeks. What is the all likelihood that she is 100% pregnant? We are not dating and WILL NOT date. This is bad for all . . . Her, me and the possible baby. Please help

Birth Control Answer A21819
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Birth control pills start being effective in giving protection after about 3 weeks of use. Usually the girl is not protected while being on the first pack of pills. The protection starts being effective after starting on second pack. The pills should also be taken regularly without missing pills in between. The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. Consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist for getting her a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). She should also consider stopping the pill intake immediately as the urine pregnancy tests showed positive results (it can harm the baby and affect growth).
Take care.
