If you were on the shot but you switched to taking birth control pills, but you do not take the birth control pills anymore, you have a high chance of pregnancy if you have been having unprotected intercourse. All the active hormones from the birth control will have little or no effect after 3 days of not taking birth control.

You stop taking birth control when you want to get pregnant, when you are no longer fertile, when you're not at risk of pregnancy (perhaps because your partner can't get you pregnant), or when you have a medical condition that makes birth control a bad idea.

Yes. If you stop taking your birth control you are at higher risk of becoming pregnant than before you started taking it. Especially at a younger age. I was on birth control and quit taking it for a week and now I am four months pregnant.

Taking the birth control pill lowers the risk of pregnancy. Not taking the birth control pill does not lower the risk of pregnancy. You are more likely to get pregnant when you are not taking the birth control pill.

No, you should not be pregnant when taking birth control. Birth control is meant to lower the risk of pregnancy.

Yes. You can get pregnant WHILE you are on birth control.

No, birth control is intended to prevent pregnancy. You can become pregnant while on birth control, as no method is 100% effective, but it isn't the birth control that makes you pregnant.

If you had sex Yes. After you stop taking the pill then you might get pregnant

yes you can anytime you stop taking your birth control you are increasing your chances to get pregnant. And also to you can get pregnant while on birth control sometimes

You should't be taking birth control if you are trying to get pregnant

No you discontinue taking birth control pills when you become pregnant. Birth control is a method used to prevent pregnancy. You are already pregnant so birth control has no use. Also, it may possibly cause bad side effects to continue taking birth control pills while you are pregnant.

taking birth control if you may be or are pregnant can and will harm the baby. A friend of mine was pregnant and took a pack of birth control pills to terminate the pregnancy, and it worked. so the answer is yes.

yes, and even on birth control there is a small chance of getting pregnant

take a birth control test immediately and if it is positive then stop taking them and see your doctor to make sure you are pregnant

It is rare that taking birth control will help you get pregnant. It is occasionally used in fertility clinics along with other medications in a coordinated treatment regimen. For most women, taking a birth control pill to get pregnant is a waste of time and money.

No, there is no increased rate of miscarriage for women who are pregnant while taking birth control or who get pregnant after stopping birth control.

its not guaranteed to get pregnant BUT the risk is definitely increased

If you suspect pregnancy has occurred when taking birth control, you need to have the pregnancy confirmed by your Doctor. If you indeed are pregnant, you must stop taking birth control as it can harm the unborn child.

Yes,if you miss a day without taking the pill. My girlfriend got pregnant while taking the pill

If you ARE pregnant- you have no need to take birth control, you cannot get 'more pregnant' by not taking them or anything like that. Stop taking the birth control pills and start taking prenatal vitamins. Studies are linking birth control pills to being harmful to your baby- but even if they are not harmful- why continue to take them if you are already pregnant? Again, you cannot get pregnant with multiple babies at once like one now, one in a month or anything like that. Once you are pregnant, you are pregnant and birth control will not do anything positive for your little one and is pointless to continue using.

no it will only makes sure you dont get pregnant if you are pregnant and start taking birth control its doing nothing

There's no benefit from taking birth control when you're 21 weeks pregnant.

No method of birth control is 100% effective.

If you had sex it is possible you are pregnant. The chance of getting pregnant on your period, while taking BCP is quite small.
