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.

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.

Yes, you can. While birth control is reliable, there is no birth control that is 100% effective.

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.

No. Birth control is intended to prevent pregnancy only. Birth control does not stop an existing pregnancy. It is not safe to take birth control while you are pregnant.

User Avatar

Yes you can. That is how most people get pregnant when they are on birth control. You should always use a second birth control method, like condoms, at all times any way

User Avatar

Yes, no birth control is 100% affective.

You should probably see a doctor and get an ultrasound since birth control can have harmful effects on the fetus.

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.

Antibiotics reduce the effectiveness of birth control. You should use a backup method like condoms.

FIRST, if you are on depo, you shouldn't be trying to get pregnant, as it is a BIRTH CONTROL drug. Not only because its obvious if your taking it your avoiding pregnancy, but also if you get pregnant while on birth control, or after getting off birth control, it can lead to defects, miscarages, and other things that are a direct cause of being on birth controll. To be safe, you should get off birth control if your planning to become pregnant, wait a year, and then start trying. Of course, consult your doctor, but this is what i know. From experience my cousin miscaried when she became pregnant 3 months after birth control because of the birth control.

Unfortunately, the answer is YES! Birth control is only 99% effective. The only sure way to not get pregnant is to not have intercourse!

User Avatar

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.

A missed period while on birth control could be a side effect of the type of birth control you are on or you could be pregnant. You should take a home pregnancy test and/or see your Dr.

Women do not menstruate while pregnant. If you are certain you are pregnant, and begin bleeding, you should see a doctor immediately.
