i was just wondering what are the chances of me getting pregnant while being on the pill if i take it pretty much the same time everyday. im on microgynon 30 i started it about a week ago the doctor told me to start it off at the same time my period arrives (just for the first pack) but everyone i know said that doesnt sound right? :S anyway back to my main question, i know alot of people have got pregnant while being on the pill but i was just wondering could it have been prevented or have they actually been taking the pill correctly? i dont want to end up paranoid about being pregnant every month! yes i will use condoms aswell for the first month
I took my pill every day, at the same time and still got pregnant but that was after 5 years of being on it...my MW said it just sounds like it became less effective for me and if she had any say in how long we were on certain pills for she'd adjust it so we changed every 3 years or so.
Saying that my mum got pregnant on the pill, same circumstances as me...so if I'd have not been so naive in my thoughts that it wouldn't happen to me then maybe I could have pushed for a different pill / contraceptive method.
thanks for all the replies
got another question to do with the pill. ive been on it for 9 days and my periods usually last 7 days...but on the 8th day i was still bleeding brown colored blood then today (the 9th day) i had alot of brown blood aswell but then this evening i got full on red blood come out loads of it and a clot in it aswell (sorry tmi!) am i coming back on my period? my mum said it could be to do with the stress thats going on in my house atm
I had the same when I first started taking the pill so think its just normal? The first month is always the worst when going on the pill because of the changes etc...it never happened to me again after that
