Chances of getting pregnant while on the pill?


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 think the chances of you becoming pregnant on the pill if you are taking every day at the same time, and are using condoms, is very very slim, probably impossible.

Unfortunately, I haven't seemed to grasp why some have gotten pregnant on the pill, but it does happen irregardless. I know some have gotten pregnant because they forgot one.

There are also some that got pregnant while on antibiotics. I never heard of this until last year but supposedly some antibiotics will cause the pill to become ineffective.

And I also think that sometimes the pill was too weak for some.

The pill, like other contraceptives isn't 100% effective so although it's very unlikely to get pregnant whilst on it having taken it same time everyday there is still a small possibility

Its not 100% effective and things like drinking alcohol, being sick or taking other medication can effect the pill i believe. And of corse if you miss a day!

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.

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

There's a less than 1% chance of getting pregnant if you're on the pill taking it correctly.

But, I'm in the 1% that got pregnant, and I've got a gorgeous baby girl now So it really does happen.

I have been having sex for 12 months now on the pill and haven't gotten pregnant yet. BUT, this month, i have a feeling it happened. It is possible.
