    Default pill babies?

    Hi

    This is a question for those who have got pregnant while on the pill. When you go to the sugar pills, did you still get a period?



    ta,

    I have never gotten PG while on the pill, but I would assume that generally if you were PG you would miss your AF while on the sugar pills.
    There will always be exceptions to the rule, when some PG women will still get a bleed around AF time even if they are PG.

    hey there,

    i have fallen preg twice on the pill. Second preg was my DD....

    I never realised that you could "skip" your period by going onto the new packet, instead of taking the sugar pills until a friend of mine told me - turns out my pill wasnt working on me, as i used to get AF BEFORE the sugar pills!

    but, no, i didnt get AF when preg..... hope you are ok honey?

    I was on the pill when I fell pregnant with my first. Iwas nearly 9 weeks when I found out cause still had AF it was just a bit lighter then normal. I only went to the Dr cause of the morning sickness.

    I fell preg on the pill - and had a one day medium period. Didn't think too much, just thought it was light. I went on to take the next 3 weeks of the packet but was starting to feel off - then felt preg and did a HPT. I ended up m/c though - and it can be harmful to take the pill whilst preg so if in doubt - yeah, use something else and do a HPT!

    Good luck

    I fell pg with DD while on the pill. I had a very light AF for about 2 days. Took me a couple of weeks to work out I was pg!

    I fell PG on the pill. I had two slightly lighter (but not enough to really think about it) periods during my next 2 breaks and the week after the 2nd one finished i miscarried.

    Thanks for sharing your stories. It looks like the answer is not usually, but sometimes!

    I am all good. Just a nasty UTI. Thanks also for concern offered.

    Cheers,

    Kate
