Can you get pregnant on birth control?

Can you get pregnant on birth control?

I recommend discussing this with your family physician or ob. They can fill in the details and discuss all the options.

How could someone get pregnant while on birth control?

Low chance: If a woman is taking birth control pills every day, same time each day the chance of her getting pregnant is low, about 1/100 per year. There are several situations that can cause the bcp to fail, such as taking antibiotics or some other medications. However the commonest reason women get pregnant on birth control pills is missing pills and not using a back up method.

Could I still get pregnant even if I use birth control?

Yes, depends on which: No birth control method is 100% even with perfect use (no missed or late pills), the failure rate is 0.3% (less than 1 couple/100 will get pregnant in the first year of use) or 9%-9/100 will get pregnant with typical use of birth control pills. The most effective birth control are iuds or implants. They've also very easy to use, and as effective as permanent sterilization but reversible.
