Pregnant On Generic Bcp

Marsha - June 22

I don't start until next week, but I have been concerned b/c I just switched from Mircette to the generic birth control pill Kariva. I wondered if anyone here who is pregnant got pregnant on bcp, and esp. the generic, or knows someone who did. I've just been having some pregnancy symptoms, but I am prob. imagining it...but I'd like to know how common that is. Thanks so much!

hey marsha, i got pregnant on the pill, i thought it wasnt possible unless u missed a pill, but i was wrong. within a week of me finding out i was pregnant i heard about 2 more girls who got pregnant on the pill, so yes it can happen

i don't think if the pill is generic or not makes a different. they're made the exact same way. i am pregnant now and i was on the pill and not trying. my dh and i are very happy but it was definately a surprise!

Thanks so much for this info...the only reason I wondered if anyone had a personal story about the generic is b/c my bro-n-law used to sell Mircette, and he told me the "real" pill, the same amount of hormones or whatever go into each pill but in the generic it is not the exact same in every pill. He could be wrong, I could have misunderstood, or it might not make a bit of difference. Its just that I switched and then our anniversary rolled around around the time I'd be ovulating...haha. So, if I was ever gonna get pregnant on the pill it would be now! :)
