Getting Pregnant Taking Contraceptives – Is It Possible?

Myth or truth? Is it possible to get pregnant by taking contraceptives ? And to the surprise of those who take this very effective method, the answer is yes! Those who take contraceptives can get pregnant. Of course, people who take a day religiously and under normal conditions would not get pregnant with contraceptives. However, no contraceptive method is 100% safe, sometimes the 98% rate is not enough, but in general they are quite safe.

But in order for a woman to become pregnant by taking contraceptives, some external and somewhat unusual factors are needed in that cycle specifically. So if you prevent yourself from getting pregnant by taking contraceptives, keep an eye on the following tips.

IMPORTANT: If you are not a regulated person and are unable to take medication every day at the correct times, it is better to look for another method of contraception.

Main Causes That May Occur for Women to Get Pregnant

The factors that can lead to pregnancy even with contraceptive use are diverse but the most common are:

  • Contraceptive Exchange
  • Forgetfulness of the pill
  • Use of antibiotics
  • Diarrhea or vomiting within 4 hours of taking the pill
  • Pill or improper dosage of the pill

Factors That Help You Get Pregnant By Taking Contraceptives

The exchange of contraceptives can provide pregnancy when the woman starts taking a new medication with another active principle of action, that is, if she took an estrogen based medication and starts taking a progesterone based one, there may be a delay adaptation of the body to the new medication and thus open a fertile window and the woman becomes pregnant taking contraceptives even if taken at the right time and time.

Another factor of pregnancy when using contraceptives is the famous “I forgot the pill” . Forgetting the pill is normal can happen, but if the woman is more forgetful with the medication, it would be better to opt for another form of contraception, or even the injectable contraceptive.

Forgetting the pill for a maximum of 12 hours would still be relevant, but a forgetting of more than 12 hours or more than 24 hours has the possibility of opening the fertile window and then pregnancy happens with the use of contraceptives. We can say that you forgot the pill that was supposed to be taken the day before noon 24 hours later it will not have an expected contraceptive effect and then also open a fertile window.

Myths and Truths About the Birth Control Pill.

The use of antibiotics during the cycle with contraceptives can also impair the effectiveness of the medication’s expected action. Some active ingredients of the antibiotic can lose strength and also be responsible for opening a fertile window and providing that the woman can get pregnant by taking contraceptives.

Diarrhea and vomiting are also external factors, but this time the body may not be well and end up expelling the contraceptive without even having time to be absorbed by the woman’s body.

Another factor little discussed is the dosage of the pill or the inadequacy of the active ingredient of the contraceptive for the woman’s body specifically speaking. If the body does not get along with the progesterone-based contraceptive, the doctor will detect this failure and arrange for a contraceptive exchange to ensure that the woman is not at risk of becoming pregnant by taking the wrong contraceptive for her body.

So we can summarize that taking the contraceptive correctly every day at the same time is a great way to prevent unwanted pregnancies. If you forget or even use antibiotics and a sexual intercourse on the day of ovulation or in the fertile period, even with the use of medication, it can cause a pregnancy.

For safety I advise you to adopt other forms of prevention if any of the above episodes happens is also important, condoms are a great option for these possible fertile windows. I think that even with the correct use of contraceptives, it is certainly a divine will! Feel gifted!

Questions from Readers:

What is the chance of getting pregnant by taking the right contraceptive?

As already mentioned, no contraceptive is 100% safe and even if taken correctly, failures can occur, even in the slightest chance. Contraceptives offer 98% security, so they offer 2% risk of becoming pregnant. But it is worth warning that taking it right, at correct times can also fail if you use drugs that “cut the effect” during use.

What is the risk of getting pregnant by taking contraceptives at different times?

It is recommended to take the contraceptive daily at the same time to ensure effectiveness and avoid forgetting the pill. However, if it is taken within 12 hours of the last pill, the chances are practically nil to get pregnant.

What is the risk for the baby to get pregnant by taking contraceptives?

There are no risks for the baby, but some recent studies indicate that as in the first trimester the formation of the baby’s sexual organs occurs, the ingestion of hormones can compromise. It is worth remembering that the formation of Organs genitals depends completely on genetics and the hormonal part and may undergo changes in their formation if the hormone levels are unregulated.
