Were You On The Pill

To those ladies who were on the birth control pill method and took it faithfully...never skipped or forgot...did you become pregnant while on it? And which brand of pill were you on? Did you still get a period while you were not yet aware of your pregnancy? How long did you end up still taking your pill while you were unknowingly pregnant?

i did, i was on microgynon 30, i had two periods, and took it for my first trimester without knowing it. i also used condoms which sucked at the time. however, baby was fine!

I did, it was over 15 years ago though, and I don't remember the brand. I do know that I had taken antibiotics at some point while on the pill, and that lessons their effectiveness. I ended up losing the baby, but figured I was pregant pretty soon after I conceived and stopped taking the pills.

I would also like to know. I'm on the pill (yasmin) and have never missed a pill but I did take amoxicillin during this cycle. What are my chances of being pregnant?

My sister was on marvelon, took it faithfully every morning at 10 am. She got pregnant. She was 2.5 months in before she knew she was pregnant. So she was taking the pill for those weeks. SHe is now 6 months preg and everyhitng seems fine for her an her baby.

The reason I ask is because I am on Ortho Cyclen. The past two months I have had some symptoms of pregnancy-cramping when it is not my period, headaches, nausea,mood swings, etc. But I have not missed any periods, so I don't know if my periods are "pill periods" or if there is something else wrong. I am due for another period in 2 weeks, so I will see what this month brings. Thanks for your input, ladies.
