If your girl friend is on birth control, she takes her pill everyday and hasn't miss one, and you ejaculate inside her, what are the chances of getting pregnant?

Birth Control Answer A43863
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If this is not her first pill pack use, and if she has been regular in taking the pills at scheduled time daily, then she should have the protection. However, chances of contraceptive failure are also possible since none of the birth control measures give you 100% protection, and hence you should consider using back-up protection during sexual contact/intercourse if worried about pregnancy. Using two methods for birth control gives higher protection rate. If she has been regular in taking her birth control pills at scheduled time daily (within 2 hours of scheduled time) and has not missed taking any active pills, and has been on birth control pills for more than a month, then she should have the protection. Wait and watch for her periods/withdrawal bleeding. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out she should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. She should stop the hormonal contraceptive use if pregnancy chances are suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed.
Take care.
