The first day of my last period was on Feb. 1 and I had s_x on Feb. 12 and on Feb. 26. I am now 1 week late which hasn't happened for years. I am on the pill and the pregnancy test at the clinic today was negative. Can I still be pregnant?

my friend got pregnant on the pill....if you have a 28 day cycle then you were most fertile from the 12th through the 15th and could be pregnant....if you still have not gotten your period, retest in a week

yes it's possible to get pregnant on the pill. However, if you have been on the pill for a number of years it's also possible to miss a few periods...or even go on with out having a period. This happened to me 4 years ago, and all i had to do was go on a different pill for a couple of months and things were back to normal.

I have been taking the pill faithfully since I was 14 (now 23) and three weeks after I got maried we found out that we were starting a family a little sooner than planed. So ya It can happen. As far as the negative test I have heard that they can be wrong but I have taken clinic tests and they say that if it says negative then for sure it's negative. Any way good luck!

My son is living proof that you can get pregnant on the pill :o)

For those of you who got pregnant on the pill, did you still have your period the first month or so?

Did you miss a pill? If you did there is a chance you could get pregnant. I missed a day of the pill and ended up getting pregnant, but I had a miscarriage

I got pregnant with my first daughter on while on the pill,and didn't realize until i three months pregnant that i was pregnant because i had my period like clockwork.I continued to have my period throughout that whole pregnancy.(my daughter is now 9).So yes it can happen.

I was wondering does the pill hurt your baby if you pregnat and you don't know it? How does it effect your child?

I took my bc pills everyday like clock work and was on them for 7 years and gues what? I am almost 6 mos right now. Yes my husband and I were really shocked!!!! Good luck to ya Candace.Keep us posted...........I'm wondering if anyone else got surprised.

I got pregnant on the pill, so I know it could happen. I was pretty careful about taking my pill everyday approx same time each day. I felt so ripped off...LOL

I am not pregnant. They think that I have a cyst on my ovary and that is why I have not had my period. I go for my ultra sound next week to see if I have a cyst.

i have had s_x once and i wanna go on the pill how old do you have to be


Melissa - April 13

Lucy, are you sure you're ready? Make sure that you are ready before you commit to having s_x. If you do though, go to a gyno IMMEDIATELY. You need to get checked out even if you don't get on the pil.

Yes. I just read an article today about a woman who got pregnant on the pill. When she first found out, she thought she was 12 weeks pregnant, but when she went for a scan it turned out she was nearly 5 months pregnant.

Yes you can. The pill is not 100% effective.
