nope its not told but there is only meant to be a 47% cover rate, the pill is acutally meant to be used along side with a condom, i was told this when the pill made me ill and when i was at the GYNO clinic getting my coil. which didn't get fitted, its very commonto get pregnant on the pill unless you are using it right and its the right dosage which often it is not its usually very low one, sorry to hear about your loss emma, thats a shame my heart goes out to you about that, i lost my first after getting pregnant while on the pill but the midwife said the pill did not cause my miscarriage....

sorry also to hear about your miscarriage chantelle, good luck with this litte one how far along are you?

still sorry to hear about your little one never nice lossing a child no matter what is gonig on at the time, my miscarriages were from December 2004 - Jan 2008, i have suffered 5 all before the 12th week of pregnancy, i have one living son who will be 1 on sunday, and currently TTC with my partner, but i have Rhesus sensitivity and also a revolted uterus which both effect my fertility my revolted uterus stopps the fertilised egg from implanting my son was 7 weeks 2days gestation before he implanted which we believe is why he is still here he was also born at 33weeks gestation and my RS (rhesus sen) kills of the baby thru my blood, it was only when i was pregnant with my son they found this out and Anti-D shots do not work to portect sadly which makes it hard to carry a baby for any length of time, but just glad to have my little boy, and hopefully will be blessed with another one someday...

 congrats on little one, and hopefully all goes well and you'll have your little bundle of joy soon enough,

take care

Hi there,

Is it possible to get pregnant on the pill if you have sex during or just after your weeks break from the pill.

Hi, I've been on the pill for about 4 months, and i havent missed one pill. However there was one day after a night out and i'd had to re-take the pill 4 times as i kept vomiting from drinking too much. I was fine afterwards, but a couple of weeks later i started bleeding for a few days,even though i was still on the pill. Ive continued to take my pill as normal and then to have the 7 day break after this packet finishes. i have got 5 days left till i start the 7 day break, but my main concern is that me and my partner has sex last night, whilst i was still bleeding. Is there any risks of being pregnant, even though im still on the pill, but im bleeding still? Please help. xxx

i had my period for 3 weeks while using the pill the day it went away I had sex and he ejaculated in me. Do you think the pill wasn't working for the past couple week? Could I be pregnant?

Hey, just been reading everyone's stories. Does anyone know if taking the pill can cause you to miscarry? I was taking the pill all the time like I was supposed to, without missing any of them, yet last weekend I needed to go to hospital as I was having a miscarriage. I had no idea that I was pregnant either, so the whole thing was rather stressful and traumatic for me. I'm 23, healthy and now knowing that I was pregnant and had a miscarriage makes me think that I might have done something to cause it even though the doctor's told me that it probably had nothing to do with my actions. It's been a very confusing time for me, I was 4 months pregnant as well and not knowing that I was pregnant, and for that period of time as well has not been helpful. I had no symptoms at all of being pregnant, other than the lack of my period each month, but I put this down to stress of my upcoming law exams.
Is it normal as well to have real massive mood swings following a miscarriage? I keep feeling very emotional and crying (and crying is not something I normally do), yet if I didn't even know I was pregnant, should I still be going through the grief associated with a miscarriage?
If anyone could help out with this it would be really appreciated!!

Hi every1,

I wanted to know what are the chances of pregnancy if you took he pill everyday as per normal but at different times not always the exact same [but are within the correct times as per leaflet] & had unprotected sex but also got the emergancy contraceptive for just in case the pill might fail and you have been suffering from light diarrhoea and haven't take any extra precautions whilst the diarrhoea? I am on the 5th red pill & still am not bleeding... am worried out my mind right now!! How long should i wait to take a pregnancy test if the intercourse has only been less than a week ago.

My girlfriend are noth 17 and she has been on birth control for about two months now and she is on Loestrin 24. She has been taking the pill everyday in the morning, but she recently missed taking her pill at the normal time, but took it later that same day at in the early afternoon. We have had sex since, but I used a condom the first time and the other two times I didn't ejaculate. She had 4 red pills with her birth control and she is on the 2nd pill, but still hasn't gotten her period. She got her period the first month right when she took her first red pill, so we are both worried. Do you think she might be pregnant or do you think her period is off due to the fact she took her regular pill a few hours after she was supposed to? Thanks
