@Girls, Please Help Me!!

Dear girls, I'm 17 years old, and my boyfriend is 19 years old. I am supposed to start my cycle within the next few days but me andmy boyfriend have had unprotected sex and he came in me. I am on the birth control pill but is there a chance I could be pregnant still? Please help us!

    If your cycle doesn’t start when it should be I would take a test. It’s very unlikely but it can still happen.

    I’m sure you’re ok as long as you’re taking your pills everyday on time at the same time

    If you’re in birth control and you took it the day you had unprotected sex you won’t be pregnant ,

    There’s always a chance especially if you missed pills or few minutes off from the other times you’ve taken it etc but just test

    Check a week after ur missed period that's what I do cuz sometimes I'm late and I when our condom broke I was a week late and took it and take the test in the morning when u first go to the bath room it will be more accurate

    you should be okay... if it was within 3 days take plan b if not just don’t stress about it cause the more u stress the better chance your period will be late and then you’ll be scaring yourself for no reason

    With any kind of birth control you always take the risk of getting pregnant the pill is least affective but not likely

    Tbh if you have to ask that question that means you should be having sex in the first place.

    2020-01-20 21:32:24

    there is a chance, but im sure youll be fine as long as youve kept up with your pills! plan b is a little expensive but if you can, o suggest getting that for a for sure option.

    Remember if you stress about the thought that you actually might be pregnant you will start to believe even if your not your body can react as if you are is under a lot of stress so just relax and wait til Lyly know for sure

    If you’re worried you should take a test to be sure. The pill is less effective if you missed a day or 2.

    You can still get pregnant while on the pill, nothing is 100% certain to keep you from getting pregnant. I recommend either taking a test or going to your health clinic.

    Depends how long you’ve been on the pill, also you can still get pregnant while on the pill it’s slim but it can still happen especially if you’re not taking them every day.
    You can wait till you see if you get your period. But sometimes your pill stops you from having one so best of luck.

    Everyone’s body is different. I may not be 100% correct on my previous comment but if your period is late take a test or make an appointment with your doctor to be on the safe side .

    i always have protected sex condom+birthcontrol just to be safe cause if me and my boo ever talk about wanting babies then we’ll risk it even on birth control then stop birth control. sounds stupid but it’s being safe

    if you take your birth control like you’re supposed to , then you should be fine. And if you aren’t ovulating you might be okay. 🤞🏾 good luck

    I had the IUD and had unprotected sex loads of times, but all it took was me and my boyfriend having sex thinking we would be fine and I got pregnant. Found out too late and I had the IUD scheduled to be removed and I had a miscarriage a few days before that. So it just depends really

    The pill is about 90% affective and in some cases some women are in that 10% of getting pregnant. Doctors always advise that you try not to forget your pill as it’s most affective when taken everyday if you forgot and he came in you there’s a chance you could be pregnant im on the pill and I do forget sometimes I’ve had pregnancy scares before but I’ve never turned out pregnant and I still forget sometimes if it’s been a couple days since the incident take a plan b if it’s been more than a week or two take a pregnancy test to be sure and not worry yourself

  • Samantha Hamlin

    2020-01-22 19:41:09

    The only form of birth control that is 100% affective is abstinence. You can get pregnant when on the pill, even if you are not on antibiotics (but they do make it even less affective). Best advice I can give is not to freak out because that will make your period late from stress. Wait until you are about a week late and take a test. Probability of being pregnant is low because of birth control, but still very possible. Unfortunately, you just have to wait and see.

    Also it’s said that 1 out of 100 women become pregnant on birth control so I doubt you could be but just take a test to make sure

  • Kristen Parker

    2020-01-22 19:46:28

    I doubt you are, just wait two weeks to be exact and take a first response they detect the earliest , the hospital won’t find you pregnant until you’re about 6/7 weeks so go with first response pregnancy tests

  • Sophie Grimes

    It is very possible and even more so if you aren’t taking your birth control like you should. I got pregnant twice on the pill. I had my first at 17 tho and it wasn’t so bad. My family was mad because they had a lot of hopes and dreams but once they saw I wasn’t backing dale on what I wanted they became very supportive. Also side note the plan B only works up to 72 hours after unprotected sex so don’t bother wasting your money on it. Best of luck and if you need anyone to talk to I’m here. I’m 21 with 2 kids of my own, a step son, and I have custody of my niece. I have been where you are and can probably help you.

    2020-01-22 20:37:43

    There is always the possibility, if you take your birth control at the same time every day, you are less likely to get pregnant but still that small chance, if you are supposed to start in a few days you might get a test, there are some that test up to 5 or 6 days sooner. Clear tested my pregnancy 3 days before my period was supposed to come

  • Martika Dominguez

    Martika Dominguez

    2020-01-22 20:38:13

    It’s possible yes but your birth control can also change your period at any time. I was on the pill first and made me go insane as well as the shot. The only one that worked for me is my Nexplanon implant and my periods are all sorts of whack since being off. I wouldn’t be worried but if it’s at least 2-3 weeks late then I would take a test or talk to your doc.

  • Racheal Gross

    Don’t stress and take a pregnancy test if your period doesn’t show up! I was young once and it’s great that your on birth control but it isn’t always 💯 so you also need to make sure to use condoms. Good luck all the best wishes your way!

    I need some advice for myself I’ve been off my pill for a while now and have been having sex regularly including on my ovulation days. My periods suppose to start in two days I went to the er last night for other reasons and was told I had a uti. My stomach is killing me, I’m cramping so bad and throwing up. The doctors said nothing about being pregnant, could all this just be the uti? If I was pregnant the doctors would’ve caught that right

    Yes. You absolutely can still get pregnant while on the pill. My mother had been taking hers for years and still got pregnant with me. I had been on the pill for a couple of years and still ended up pregnant with my daughter. It is unlikely, but yes there is still a chance that you could get pregnant.

    It isn't impossible but if you have been consistent with taking your pill, taking it around the same time of day every day, then it is very improbable. Don't stress too much about it because that can affect your cycle.

    Nothing is 100% accurate other than abstinence. But as long as you take your pill the way you need to, don't missed a dose and take the pill at the same time every day you should be okay. When I was in the pill I never had any problems, and never became pregnant. I had unprotected sex as well but the pill never failed me. Now the difference is I am married so whether I get pregnant or not it doesn't matter cause if it happens we both are on the same page on having the baby. Sometimes stress can trigger the period to be late, so just wait patiently and dont over think. Good Luck!

    it just depends tbh how long have u been on the pills? do u take them like u should? are u taking any other meds? i was on the pill but i wasnt good at taking them i missed and got pregnant i was 17 and had my daughter at 18 then wound up doing it again and had my second at 19 no birth control is 100 % affective if ur having sex there's always a chance u could get pregnant but everything is gonna be fine u might be pregnant but u might not u should stay calm and take a test if u miss ur period

    it can happen but it is very unlikely but sometimes if u have a certain medical condition it could disrupt the pill but I mean the pill only lowers the chances not completely eliminate the but I highly doubt it

    my boyfriend and I use the pull out method with birth control to be extra safe but just stay consistent taking the pill and DO NOT have unprotected sex if you have to take an antibiotics because it cancels out the birth control

    yes you can, matter fact I am a pill baby if you tend to just miss one pill or take it after something where you mess up you have a high chance and even if you are taking it everyday on time you never know because birth control is 99% there has always been that 1% left out because people have gotten pregnant

    there is a small chance but i wouldn't worry about it to much for the first 3 months of starting birth control you usually miss your period and if your that worried about it you can always get a test or get a blood test done from your doctor

    There is a small chance you could be pregnant but it’s unlikely. There is things that can cause the birth control not to work like some antibiotics for UTI’s that’s how my brother was born.
