Post Pregnant while on the Pill

I am newly pregnant and have been on the pill. This is my third month on the pill but I'm pregnant. so how can I be pregnant if I've been on the pill for 3 months?? I've never been pregnant before.. It's a nice surprise tho

Hi again, I just responded to your other post! Anyway, just thought I'd let you know - these things do happen! Happened to me when I became preg with my daughter. I had been on the pill for over 1 1/2 years when I found out I was pregnant with her. The pill is not 100%, so it does happen, but rarely... guess we are the lucky ones !

Again, congratulations!

i'm sorry if this comes out the wrong way......
but you have another post that posted on 9/03/03 at 6:27. the other said you are wanting to get pregnant but don't know if you should wait. now only a few minutes later posted at 6:58 you say that you are pregnant and don't know how you could be because you are on the pill. i'm sorry but i don't understand. did you just take a test?

ok i'm sorry...i just read the other post that says you just found out. i hope i did not offend you...

yes you can get pregant with any form of protection. nothing is 100%. you can never be "ready" but don't let a few bills get in the way of having a family. there is nothing like a child to love.

As you know now the pill is not 100% accurate. But if your happy about being pregnant, that's great!! Guess you were meant to get pregnant!!! Do you know when your due date is yet???

I got pregnant when I was on the pill and I never missed a day. My doctor said that it was because I was on so many different types of pills in a year because they didn't agree with me, also he said it might have been because I didn't take the pill at the same exact time every day. Could this possilby be a reason for you? Well hope your happy with the news of your pregnancy, and good luck!!
