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.

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.

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

Yes. Birth control is not 100% effective against pregnancy. You can still get pregnant, even if you are taking the pill correctly. However, your chances of getting pregnant (assuming that you are taking it correctly) are quite slim.

These answers regarding Birth Control are wrong and misinformed. You CAN get pregnant while taking birth control pills as they are only 99% effective. There is also no medical proof that continuing to take the pill while pregnant (unknowingly of course) will harm the foetus.

You can stop taking birth control any time you like. Be sure to use a new method if you still don't want to be pregnant.

You periods are meant to be lighter on birth control, but I guess you could be pregnant. Take a test and I would stop taking the pills just until you know you're not pregnant

While a few antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills, they don't have any significant effect on whether or not you get pregnant if you are not on the pill.

It's unlikely to be pregnant if you're having regular periods and taking birth control correctly and consistently. Talk to your health care provider if you have concerns about the reliability of your method.

User Avatar

Yes, you can. While birth control is reliable, there is no birth control that is 100% effective.

If you just started taking birth control your periods are going to be irregular for the first few months. But it is possible to still get pregnant on the pill.

User Avatar

You shouldn't get pregnant because you were taking your birth control at the time. Though don't have unprotected sex now, because you will get pregnant. If you are still worried and think you might be pregnant take a pregnancy test.

As long as you are taking your birth control pills it is very unlikely that you would get pregnant, wether you skip your period or not. Als always if you are unsure, speak to your doctor or nurse.
