Im taking contraceptive pills which stops at the 21st day. My menses did not come for the whole of last month, is it due to hormones? or did the particular batch of pills did not work? I have a 1year old daughter

I never took contraceptives but all my sisters did and one of my sisters got pregnant 3x within 3 and a half years once was on the depo and the other 2 were while taking the pill religiously same time everyday right after waking up to get eready for school. It happens some people are just really fertile :) And if you have taken any antibiotics or glucose they lower the strength of your contracetive.... Just test it will save you alotof worry if you just know!!! Let us know too :)

I was on the pill when I fell pregnant with Haylee, it's only 95-99.5% effective. But if your like me and forget a pill every now and then it's even less effective lol

yes you can! my mother was on the pill when she conceived me. if you have been taking any antibiotics, you need to talk to a dr.

YES!! YES!! YES!! I got pregnant with my son while taking Ortho Tricyclen-lo... and I took it religiously by an alarm clock set on my cell phone. I guess I'm one of the exceptions to the 99% effective rule :) However, I've taken other birth control that has made my menses stop all together. There's a lot of different factors that can play a role, for example, having an irregular cycle to begin with.

I got pregnant with my first child while on the contraceptive pill but everybody is different, it could be stressed related also.

yes you can, I was on the pill when i got pregnat with my 2nd baby, so now i have a 13 monht old and 2 1/2 month old..so it happens i would definetaly do a pregnancy test just to make sure, i later learned that after you have a baby that is when you are most fertile again! so pill didnt work for me after i had my 1st and I now have an IUD, trying to remember to take a pill while taking care of 2 babies its kind of hard :) well hope everything goes well for you!

Contraceptives aren't 100% ever. I was on the nuvaring both times I found out I was pregnant 5 1/2 yrs ago and 1 yr ago. No worry about missing a pill, just change it on schedule. I just am thankful to have had it work for so long w/o getting pregnant! Some people say "I would use something else then" but its the only method that has worked for my lifestyle and my body didn't have a negative reaction so all I can do is :-)

well 5 1/2 and a year + gestation
