I suppose it's possible. Anytime you start a new Birth Control you should always use a "backup method" of birth control to be safe. Take a home test and if it comes back negative but you still haven't started your period, then consider making an appointment with your ob/gyn for a blood test.

As long as you started the shot on or before the day you were supposed to start your next pack, you have continuous protection while switching from the birth control pill to depo provera.

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.

Yes, you are supposed to take your birth control for at least a month before having unprotected sex. If you miss even a day or two you should probably use a condom.

Nausea can be caused by many conditions and medications, including the birth control patch and pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test if you think you're pregnant. If it's negative, restart the birth control patch.

It takes a month before the birth control is fully effective so if you had unprotected sex most likely you could be pregnant.

no a toddler can not get pregnant as you have to have started your periods before you can become pregnant

You can not be pregnant if you have your period at all. However, if you have missed a week of your birth control pills you do have the chance of becoming pregnant if you have unprotected sex.

they aren't supposed to. they are actually supposed to test youu and see if your pregnant before they give you birth control. but, just recently i went to a gyno, and they asked if i was sexually active. i told them no, but truthfully i am. i just couldn't let my mom find out. they still should of tested mee, but they didn't?

You need to be on birth control pills for at least seven days before you are protected. Therefore if you have been taking the pills correctly, you will not get pregnant 2 weeks after. You need to be on birth control pills for at least seven days before you are protected. Therefore if you have been taking the pills correctly, you will not get pregnant 2 weeks after.

It depends on if you had sex before you started your birth control pills. Some pills may make your cycle stop, it's not uncommon. You are supposed to use another method of contraceptive during the first couple weeks of starting birth control. NO IT JUST MEANS THE PILLS ARE WORKING.

Can you take birth control pills and still be pregnant Can you take birth control pills and still be pregnant

If it was safe and your period started, then it's unlikely that you're pregnant

Yes, if you're not using birth control, you can get pregnant, even before your first post-implant period.

On the label, it warns you to use another type of birth control for the first few months. You need to build up the hormone in your body before it can do what it is supposed to do. If you had sex before it got a chance to build up, then yes, you could be pregnant.

When did you start taking birth control and when was your period supposed to come? I know that many doctors recommend that you take birth control pills for about a month before you have unprotected sex. If you're still unsure, I would recommend taking an at-home pregnancy test - some of them can detect pregnancy very early (like as soon as you miss your period, I think).

Yes you could be pregnant so perform a pregnancy test BEFORE taking birth control. can only get pregnant when you've started menstruating. So if you have sex before your period starts, you won't get pregnant. But I'm not saying it's the best idea, either.

if your not having your period you probably are pregnant already

Yes, you can get pregnant two weeks before you're on birth control if you had sex without doing anything to prevent pregnancy.

You can get pregnant before you experience your first period.

9/10 months is average. Anything before that, is somewhat rare.

Hi, Your question is: Is it hard to get pregnant after coming off birth control? Once you begin ovulating again naturally after coming off the pill your fertility level will be just the same as it was before you started birth control and will not effect your fertility. Once that you come off birth control, Yes you can get pregnant because it is still very easy to become pregnant. If you take your last birth control pill that makes you have your period, and that last day that you have your period, and you have unpertected sex, YES you will conceive.

Birth control works by preventing pregnancy. If you are already pregnant, birth control is of no use.
