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.

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.

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.

The bleeding is the withdrawal bleed and is normal. This occurs when you stop taking birth control for over a few days. You can become pregnant.

The active birth control pills are the ones that prevent pregnancy. If you don't take those pills, you could get pregnant.

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

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

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 can get pregnant WHILE you are on birth control.

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.

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

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.

Yes, since antibiotics inhibit the growth of bacteria, and sperm is not bacteria. Also, if a woman is taking antibiotics AND a birth control pill, it can cause the birth control to become ineffective, letting her get pregnant.

User Avatar

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.

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

No method of birth control is 100% effective.

I have heard that while taking antibiotics on birth control, if can weaken the effectiveness of your birth control, causing you to become pregnant. If you have worries, you should take a pregnancy test, or consult your doctor. Hope this helps.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

No. It is virtually impossible for you to become pregnant under these circumstances UNLESS one: the condom rips and there is pre cum in it (there is a slight chance that you could become pregnant from it) or two: the aforementioned situation happens and you have not been taking your birth control correctly.

When you stop taking birth control pills, you are able to get pregnant, so be careful.
