you can get pregnant if you miss one pill

The pill is not as effective if you are not consistant with taking the pill. You have a chance of getting pregnant, but no one here can give you a percentage. It is best to continue taking the pill until you know for sure if you are pregnant.

yes, as i know you can get pregnant if you just miss one pill so i presume its the same as you dont know when u might ovulate - u could ovulate like the same day i reckon

You can pretty much try right away. Ppl miss one pill and get pregnant all the time.

If you miss one dose of your birth control you become more fertile.So the answer to your question is yes if you miss a pill and have intercourse you are more likely to become pregnant.

"The pill" does not keep you from getting pregnant, it only reduces the probability of getting pregnant. While the probability is GREATLY reduced if you take the pill according to schedule, it is only slightly less effective if you miss one pill occasionally. But it is a higher risk. You have to decide on your level of acceptable risk.

Yes. If you miss a pill, you need to take it as soon as you remember, but there is still a chance you may get pregnant.

As soon as you stop taking it, or even miss one pill, you are fertile again. The pill wont make you sterile.

It depends on what pill you are using, you can get pregnant from missing just one of the "mini pills" others you would have to miss 3 or 4 -

Even if you miss one pill, and have unprotected sex where the sperm is released. You can get pregnant

can I take one morning after pill only and not be pregnant

You really shouldn't miss ANY pills. But if you miss one pill it is ok to take this pill as soon as you remember or you can thro this pill away and make your partner wear a condom for the next 2 weeks.

yes, you can. I'm on birth control. and the more days that you miss taking the pill, the easier it is to get pregnant. missing days increases your chances of getting pregnant.

Yea, if you miss a pill one day you have to take it as soon as you remember the next day.

Yes. Each day you miss a pill, or are even late taking your pill, your chances of becoming pregnant greatly increase. Most birth control instructions will tell you that if you miss 3 pills in a row, throw that pack away, start a new one and avoid unprotected sex for at least a month. Your chances are lower than if you had not been on the pill at all, but it is still possible.

If you miss a pill after your 7 day break, the best thing to do is take the one you missed with the one you are due to take.

If you miss a pill take 2 the next day. One pill doesn't matter that much in a long run. It is when you miss several days that you have a problem. Start taking your pill the same time every day and you are less likely to forget.

For starters it usually takes a week for birth control to begin working. Secondly if you were using the pill then miss your pill for even one day your chances of getting pregnant go up.

Yes. If you take just one pill at least 12 hours later than you should, you can get pregnant. It doesn't matter if you bleed or not.

Yes, you definetely can. as a matter of fact, there is about a one percent chance you will get pregnant while on the pill, or if you do not take it properly.

Not very high. I have missed 2 birth control pills before and I had unprotected sex with my husband and I did not get pregnant. I have heard that the birth control pill will still be in your blood stream for a while even if you miss one or two pills, but I am not for sure how true that is.

If you even miss one pill and are sexually active, you can get pregnant, not to mention missing several pills. The best bet would be to use some other form of birth control after missing a pill. Although I've known friends who have missed a couple in a month and not gotten pregnant, I think that is just really lucky though and would strongly advise against relying in that. Good luck!

If you have taken the pills every day for a month your chances of getting pregnant are slim, but if you think that you can take one pill and not get pregnant this isn't true. You have to take the pill everyday without fail for them to work. One missed pill does not a baby make, but only one pill a baby there will be.
