Getting pregnant after the pill

Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant after the pill


Avatar f tn When I got to where I was staying I ran out of the pill the first day I was there. Over the two weeks being there without being on the pill we had unprotected sex 4 or 5 times. How soon can you get pregnant after not taking the pill? I was supposed to have my period last week, it never came. I took a test on Saturday, but it was negative. Does it take awhile for my period to get back on track after not taking the pill? I haven't taken BC since I ran out.
Avatar n tn I have just found out i am 7 weeks pregnant and have also been on the pill for 5/6 years I stopped taking the pill on the day i found out i was expecting and had no bleeding at all.
Avatar f tn How soon after getting off the pill can you get pregnant or how long after getting off of it does your cycle return to normal?
Avatar f tn I am also 23 and I am 11 weeks pregnant today. And I was taking the pill. . With that being said the pill is not 100% I recommend you get tested ASAP especially if you dont want the baby....
Avatar f tn Well after having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, my immediate reaction is to go to the drugstore and get the emergency contraception pill. I am very young and I do not need any chance of getting pregnant. It would pretty much ruin my life at this stage. I do love my boyfriend but he continuously wants to have unprotected sex, which I really don't mind but the pill gets expensive. is it necessary to run to the store right after having unprotected sex?
Avatar m tn I got pregnant the first cycle afterwards but I didnt even ovulate till around when I normally would get my period so it was a longer cycle good luck to you
Avatar f tn After i have the baby i am thinking about getting on a pill instead of an IUD or the shot. What recommendations do you guys have for a pill to take? I would prefer a non hormonal birth control. If you have any other ideas they would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn im on the pill and i get my period the same time every month but i havent gotten it yet. could this mean im pregnant? i took a pregnancy test the day after i was suppose to get it but it was negative. should i wait an extra week before i go to find out?
Avatar f tn However, I know the Pill isn't 100% reliable and I was wondering what the odds are of getting pregnant whilst on it. Obviously the chances of it happening are slim, but generally, what are the odds? Just to add, we are not actively trying to get pregnant, this is just a little worry in the back of my head.
Avatar n tn I was on the pill for about 4 years. However, I got off of it about a year before I started trying for a baby. I got pregnant fairly quickly. they say that you should wait a few cycles when you get off the pill and then start to try. I have read that the pill can make it harder to conceive....dont know how accurate that is though. Good luck! BUY A OVULAION PREDICTOR KIT- WORKED 1st TIME FOR ME!
Avatar n tn Ok.. i was on the depo for a year decided to go off and go on the pill.. Started the pill the day my shot was due. Lots of unprotected sex before and after. had brown spotting VERY little... My nipples feel like they have the worst sun burn ever! i cant even wear my bra.. i can see all of my veins... could this be because of the pill...
Avatar n tn were you regular before the pill?
Avatar f tn i know there have been alot of questions about getting pregnant after the depo shot but id figured id ask mine anyway. i started taking the shot in oct.07 and didnt go back for my shot this month (july 08) i havent gotten a period yet but i have been cramping like i should get it. my boyfiend and i want another baby so we were wondering how long its going to take. most things i read said it was going to take 6-18months we were really hoping not to wait that long.
1692883 tn?1307637449 The same as they would be any other time. I'm assuming (based on your previous posts and such) that you're trying to get yourself pregnant. IF NOT you need to start using proper protection. Based on other previous posts, I would advise you to NOT get pregnant if you are, because you aren't in a proper situation to care for another child. You live with your mom, you already have a 9-11 month old (I can't remember what) and are living separate from the dad---not to mention you're 17.
Avatar n tn I was in the pill for 6 years for off the pill was pregnant a month later
Avatar m tn I am going to suggest getting the morning after pill. The pill is not going to be in your system from day 1 of taking it. You need to be taking it regularly for about 3 months for it to be 99% effective. Also, you still should be using a condom, the pill does not protect you from STD's. Keep it safe!!
Avatar f tn It took me almost a yr after taking the iud out before i got pregnant..
Avatar f tn Well I had no problems getting pregnant that time (obviously, as it was accidental) and this time (me and my husband are trying), it only took about 2 months after coming off the pill. I''m hoping that I don't have any problems carrying a child as I carried to 13 weeks the first time. Anyway, I only really want to hear positive stories from people who have had 1 miscarriage. I know there is always a possibility of miscarrying again but I don't want to think about that.
Avatar n tn I was on the pill for 10 years. I got my period only 35 days after stopping the pill. I got pregnant 7 months later. My friend got pregnant within the same month of going off the pill.
Avatar n tn I have been fighting with the same issue of when to try conceiving's hard, I'm livin it.
Avatar n tn First I want to say that my heart goes out to everyone for their losses. It's a terrible thing to have to go through, and I wish everyone the best. I had a missed m/c at 10 weeks at the end of July and had to have a d&c on August 1, 2007. My doctor gave me the all clear after my first period to start ttc again and my period has been normal since, only once since the d&c has my period been off by a couple of days.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend a week ago after being off the pill for about 3-4 wks. We had sex again a week after and the next day after the second time I got my period. Is there a chance I can still get pregnant or is it pretty slim since the second time we had sex right before my period?
Avatar n tn I went off the pill on June 22nd of 2000. I had a VERY positive pregnancy test two weeks later.
Avatar f tn I know it can take some time for your body to adjust after coming off the pill, but 9 months seems like an awfully long time without even one period. Definitely make an appointment and get checked out. Good luck!
Avatar n tn have you stopped taking the pill? i ovulated again after my second month of being off the pill. it is different for every woman. make a preconception appointment with your doctor. they will help with making a decision on what to do if your cycles are irregular or non existant. i had irregular periods (but would still have them...some cycles were 30 days and some were more like 45).
Avatar f tn I have been sick with the flu for the past few days and on Tuesday, I threw up about 15-20 minutes after taking my pill. Prior to this, I had unprotected sex on Sunday, the day before I started having flu symptoms. I took last nights (Wednesdays) pill on time and I will take today's (Thursdays) pill on time as well. I'm generally always very good about taking my pill on time. Is there anything I should do? Should I worry about becoming pregnant?
