is it possible to get PG when...

You are on the pill?

I know i've heard of people getting pg.  But does the baby stick?

When the lining environment is altered do to the pill?

Anyone know anything about this? 

Re: is it possible to get PG when...

  • I got pgnt on Ortho-Tricyclen. The baby did not have a viable heartbeat at 12 weeks so I required a d&c. That being said, my cousin got pgnt on the pill and never had a problem. One of those random mysteries.

  • My former boss was on the pill and 5 months pregnant before she realized it.  Her bio-daughter is now in her early teens (she adopted her to friends) and quite healthy.

    I'm not sure if it's common, but it is possible.

  • Yes you can get pg on the pill. The pill ultimately 'tricks' your body into thinking it's pg b/c of the hormones you are taking. If you don't take the pill consistently there can be a drop in the  hormones which would trigger  ovulation  which =  an  opportunity  for  conception.

  • I got pregnant with Michaela while on the pill. I never missed a pill, wasn't taking any antibiotics, etc. It's very rare when taking the pill properly, but can happen.
  • It is possible - no method is absolutely perfect. It is rare but can happen. I think many women who say they got pregnant while taking the pill.....were secretly not taking the pill. Oooops, indeed.

    Not to say it doesn't happen.

  • Ummmmm, something you want to tell us?

    ditto

  • uh, not yet...

    I've been feeling super weird the last 2 weeks.  Really dizzy and just off.  No nausea though. 

    A few days ago, DH ordered pork ( i've been veggie for 5 years now, no desire to eat meat.. and i really dont like the way it smells).  However he got the pork,, and I found myself grabbing for it and i ate a few bites!!!   my first taste of meat in 5 years.  and boy did it taste good.  I didn't eat much though, as I knew my stomach wouldn't be able to digest it.   Then i went to get my hair cut on saturday, and my hair stylist was going on and on and on and on about my scalp being dry.  She asked if i had any medical conditions or body changes recently.  Then  this morning I went to pee and i had spotting.  I never have spotting.  AF is due next week, and so i kinda freaked out for a second.

    So the thought crossed my mind.  But Ive been on ortho constantly.

  • Yes you can!!!! Nothing is 100% except NO SEX.

    I learned this the hard way. We were using BC Pills and condoms, and I had a tubal pregnancy. And then surgery...blah, blah, blah.

    Same with me.  That's how I have Jake today.

    One of my friends in college got pg while on the pill.  Her father had just passed away from a long battle with cancer.  Her doctor told her that the stress she was going through probably made her body out of whack and the pill didn't work.
