birth control


Question by  MRob (11)

What are the chances of getting pregnant while taking loestrin?

My girlfriend is on loestrin birth control and she swears she is pregnant.

Loestrin is more than 99 percent effective, provided that it is taken as directed. Pregnancy is not something one guesses at. There are a number of at-home tests to confirm a pregnancy, and she can also visit her doctor. If you doubt your girlfriend, insist on a test to settle it one way or another.

Women get pregnant while on birth control. It is usually due to missed pill(s), certain drugs such as antibiotics, incorrect hormone dosage or perhaps she ahs not been on the pill long enough to take effect.

Most Birth Controls are 98% effective so the chances that you will actually get pregnant is slim to none. However, people have gotten pregnant while taking birth control before. Tell her to take a Home Pregnancy Test and then you will know for sure!

Pregnancy can happen during any sort of birth control, especially if the directions were not followed and understood. This is especially likely if pills were missed.
