How Do You Know If Your Birth Control Has Failed And If You Might Be Pregnant
Pregnancy test: You should take a pregnancy test. These can be purchased at the pharmacy or you can see you doctor and they can check.

Make appointment: Make an appointment with your OB/GYN to specifically discuss conceiving and what steps she/he plans. In the meantime, if you are overweight do EVERYTHING you can to bring this down. Even a loss of 10% of your body weight can have a significant improvement on your hormonal status. Exercise alone, even without weight loss can be beneficial as well!

No: Not if you took the first 3 weeks properly. But remember, only abstinence is 100% foolproof. The pills do have a failure rate.

I recommend discussing this with your family physician or ob. They can fill in the details and discuss all the options. If you really want to reduce your risk of pregnancy then using condoms in addition to birth control is helpful.See 1 more doctor answer

Some medication like certain antibiotic etc can decrease the absorption of the birth control pills and make it less efficacious and that will increase risk for pregnancy. Discuss further with your gyne.
