Not at all, there's nothing in them. But, just fyi, I know several ladies including myself who all got pregnant on that particular pill

No, the sugar pills are just that, sugar. They are the placebo pills. Their only purpose is to keep you in the habit of taking your pills every day no matter what.
Just make sure you start taking your next row of actual pills on the correct day!

I also got pregnant on Tricyclin. I was careful about taking them too, never late never missed. I also got pregnant on Yasmin, same thing never missed or late. Now hubby is getting snipped and I have a
Mirena.

Thanks.. now I feel like a blond!

Tracy- I doubt it will happen to me. I missed a few but I get right back track and havent had any "oopsies" but that is good to know though.
I have heard lots of stories about women getting pregnant on that bc. Should of done my research before getting them!

Thanks ladies!
