My cousin used a condom and his girlfriend got pregnant while on the pill. The likely hood of that happening however is 0.01%. Don't worry too much about it.

You can still get pregnant if you're on the pill but the chances are very very very slim. Also, if you're using an additional method of birth control, you're narrowing the chances even more, so I would say not to worry too much about it that much. It is a scary feeling, thinking that you could become pregnant before you're ready, but i'd say you're taking all the precautions and that at least you're being responsible about the situation.

I think you're ok, as long as you take your pill within 3 hours of your usual time, don't miss a night, and especially, use condoms if you do miss one.

I have a question, too.... I'm on ortho tri cyclen lo, and my boyfriend and I don't use condoms and he finishes inside me. I take my pill at the same time every night and haven't missed one, but has anyone gotten pregnant this way? Just curious.

hi rasuyoung:

one of my friends moms got pregnant while on the pill, but she had been taking anti-biotics for a cold she had. Anti-biotics reduce the effectiveness of the pill. Just somethin I thought of when I read your post. I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not. My doctor never mentioned it, but it says it on the pamphlet that comes with my birthcontrol. Just somethin you might want to be aware of if you ever have to take an anti-biotic. Have a good one!
