Pregnant on the pill?
Posted on: 10/01/2007
me and my boyfriend of 3 years are having sex and i am on the pill and i think im pregnant.. is it possible to get pregnant on the pill? we do not use condoms either... please help me im scared!!!
You did not explain why you think you are pregnant. Did you take a home pregnancy test? If it is positive or equivocal (or not sure of the results) you should have a confirmatory test done at your doctor's office or laboratory. If you are pregnant you should see your physician to discuss options. If you are not pregnant, I would recommend to ALWAYS use condoms. Even if you and your partner are both monogamous, you should use condoms to decrease risk of STD transmission, as well as back up method to prevent pregnancy.
