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.

If you take your pill at the same time every day you significantly limit your chance of getting pregnant.

Yes, you can't get pregnant unless you ovulate. If you ovulate in spite of taking the birth control pill, you could get pregnant.

User Avatar

yes you have to take your birth control bill daily or you have every chance of getting pregnant, as a miss in taking it will make you pregnant.

Scientists say that the chance of getting pregnant while taking the pill is near to 0,01%. So, yes, you can get pregnant, not very likely, but there's a chance.

If you have unprotected sex, there is always a chance of pregnancy. For a lot of women, they are the most fertile right after they stop taking birth control. If you had intercourse around the time of ovulation, your chances will be higher of getting pregnant.

Most birth control methods are very effective, but there is always a very slim chance of getting pregnant. For example, condoms can break, and the pills effectiveness can be lowered when taking antibiotics.

Honey, anyone can answer that, because of course, everyone knows that taking "THE PILL" will affect your chance of getting pregnant. HOPE I HELPED!!!!!!

If you are using your birth control as directed, there should be a very small chance of getting pregnant. I'm not sure if the length of time you've been on birth control matters, but if you are inconsistent when it comes to taking/using it, the likelihood of getting pregnant increases at least a little. It really depends on your form of birth control.

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.

birth control increases your chances of not getting pregnant

No, you are not pregnant it is your body getting used to your birth control getting out of your system, but you can find out for sure about pregnancy by taking a test to be sure, but more than likely you are not pregnant.

A tablet of what? Birth control pills? If you only took one birth control pill, it is the same as not taking any. It takes a complete cycle, meaning the full pack of pills, before they achieve full effectiveness. So you have very high chance of getting pregnant after taking only one birth control pill.

YES! After being on the pill for a year, I finally stopped taking it. About a month and a half later I had horrible menstrual-like cramping and thought I was getting my period. Well, it never came and I later found out that I had gotten pregnant after getting off the pill but before my period returned.

There is always a chance of getting pregnant when having sex even on the pill.

User Avatar

You can stop taking them whenever, but you risk the chance of getting pregnant while off of them

User Avatar

Yes, you do have a chance of becoming pregnant once you stop taking your birth control because it typically takes 3 days for all of the active ingredients in your birth control to exit your system.

User Avatar

They do not. Taking the pill decreases the chance of getting pregnant, but it is still possible to become pregnant on the pill.

User Avatar

By taking a test. If you are not trying to get pregnant the birth control pill can help you getting regular.

User Avatar

you could so there is a very unlikely chance of getting pregnant. my mother was on birth control and my father used a condom but here i am 21 years later

User Avatar

No. Keep taking your birth control like normal. If you stop taking it for those couple days, you GREATLY increase your chance of getting pregnant if you don't use any other form of protection for the rest of the month.

User Avatar

taking to many birth control pills will make you ill. taking the right amout correctly will stop you getting pregnant. this is what they are for. you will not be told to take a dose that is too low to work. if in doubt speak to ur doc or phamasist

User Avatar

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.
