YES. It does not matter how long you have been on Birth Control. If you miss pills, you have a good chance of becoming pregnant. Use alternate forms of contraception (condoms) until your next cycle.

Birth control works by having a constant level of hormones in your body. The last 7 pills in your pack contain no hormones. So each month, all of the birth control hormone that is in your body is depleted. Thus, it does not matter how long you have been on birth control.

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.

Outside of abstinence, there is no form of birth control that is 100%. While taking the pill may be 99% effective, missing it for a week is going to increase the chances of getting pregnant.

normal monophasic birth control pills are out of your system apprx 24 hour after you stop taking them. Not that you will necessarily get pregnant right away, but the possibility exists that soon.

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.

Birth control is 99% effective IF taken properly. This includes taking it the same time every night, not missing any PILLS, not taking anti-biotics etc. Each time you miss a pill or, are taking anti-biotics etc, your chances of becoming pregnant increases.

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.

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.

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

you can go see your doc after one month frm ur missing period that way the fake BCP wont be in your system anymore

Chances of being pregnant by missing only one pill are very slim. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you have been taking your birth control pills as required. Missing a pill here and there happens every now and then when people are too busy. If you are late with your next menstrual, then buy a pregnancy test and/or go to your doctor and they can check to see if you are pregnant. Usually, if the woman has been taking her birth control for a really long time (like since she was a teen), then there should be enough dosage of birth control in her system to where it would be 'safe' if she missed a pill.

Yes. You can get pregnant WHILE you are on birth control.

Yes. Birth control is 99% if effective IF taken properly. This would include not missing any pills, taking them at the same time, using back up form of contraception (ex: condoms) for 30 days after taking anti-biotics etc. Each time you miss a pill, your chances of becoming pregnant is raised dramatically.

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.

If you had sex Yes. After you stop taking the pill then you might get pregnant

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

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

If you throw up that quickly after taking the birth control pill, it won't be absorbed and won't be effective.No it would need to be taken again if you threw up right after taking it. The good news is you are not likely to get pregnant from missing one pill.

If you are taking your birth control properly (same time ever day/night, not missing pills, not using antibiotics, etc) and use the condom properly it is HIGHLY unlikely that you will but there is a small smidgen of possiblity that you could get 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.

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.

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

It is rare that taking birth control will help you get pregnant. It is occasionally used in fertility clinics along with other medications in a coordinated treatment regimen. For most women, taking a birth control pill to get pregnant is a waste of time and money.
