You can be pregnant for 10 months. It works out that way because a typical pregnancy lasts around 40 weeks and no more than 42. Since there are at least 4 weeks in a month, 40 weeks divided by 4 is 10. That's where the 10 months comes from. Also, oral birth control and condoms are only about 99.9% effective when used properly. There's always a small chance of pregnancy, no matter how cautious you are.

RBG- I get what you're saying about there 'always being a chance' since no method is 100% effective, but I think you also have to look at how small that chance actually is.

Yes, apparently he did ]: When my doctor referred me to my OBGYN all she could do was laugh and say I must be super fertile ]: And yeah, if I'm still here by Tuesday, my doctor is gonna induce me cause my fluid is looking a little low. I was really hoping to not be induced ]: Aaaaand yes. It's more common than you'd think I'd like to offer myself up as Exhibit A.

Sorry guys. I forgot I posted something on this thread. I know that it happens pretty often, but it's probably due to not using the contraception properly in a lot of those cases. The percentages are if they're used correctly, and really any tiny mistake can decrease their effectivenesses (WTF, that's a word?). And in no way am I saying that this is 83's case, because I recognize that the chance still exists even if everything is executed perfectly. I just think that most of the time it's probably due to something not being done properly.

my friend never used any condoms or birth control with any of her previous boyfriends and they had unprotected sex all the time and she never got pregnant, then when she got on the pill she got pregnant. odd.

Yeah it is a craaazy tiny chance. Just birth control pills and condoms together is .012% chance. But although that's a small percentage, that's just the percentage, apply that percentage to the number of people doing it and you have thousands of pregnancies around the world. And yes, you have to use them correctly. A lot of people don't leave enough room at the tip of the condom, or they don't take their pill at the same time everyday. Some people have sex even though they're taking antibiotics and that decreases the effectiveness. On my end, I was definitely taking my pill at 10am every single morning, just like I had been when they were prescribed to me when I was 12 (for medical reasons). I don't know if he did everything exactly right o his end, but it doesn't really matter now. I'm gonna a beautiful baby boy here any day now.

'well if you're both grown adults in a serious commited relationship then no problem.' I like the simple world were some people are living in... What if he/she/they do(es)n't want a kid, hey? No problem? I am a grown-up adult in a serious commited relationship, and actually, pregnancy would be a problem. A very big one.

I never said you weren't allowed to. However, you would be trying to create the very thing that you do not want. That just doesn't make any sense. If something would be a huge problem for me, then I'd try and avoid it happening.

Congratulations, OP, since you were the one giving the speech, I am assuming you have a job and can care for your baby, unlike the teens in high school. The timing is, however, ironic. I guess you should have practiced what you preached.

who says he didn't !? maybe the condom broke or there was problems so her birth control didn't work? I was on medication while I was taking my birth control and ended up pregnant.

Don't they tell you birth control possibly doesn't work when you take medication -_-??? So many people seem to not know simple things about contraception. (I'm not blaming you if your doctor didn't mention it, it is down to him to tell you!) Mainly to other people here; but just do research and get wise on contraception. If no one ever tells you then of course how are you suppose to know.. but...at least do a lot of research on the contraception of your choice before you use it and read the instructions fully that comes with it then you;re covered for most issues.

I'm 18 and I knew that which makes you, girl above me, an idiot. do some research if your putting something in your body you should know how it reacts and what It does to you. don't be stupid, if you didn't know it's no ones fault but your own. if your old enough to have sex and use birth control your old enough to have a baby and take responsibility , because when you have sex your stating you know the risk and if a child should occur your old enough to take care of it. you just sound stupid. take responsibility for you because it's no one else's job but your own.

Agreed. It's possible for the pill to not work even if you hadn't been on medication. And I've known about antibiotics affecting birth control for years. It's just something you should research if you're going to be putting that into your body.

"I'm 18, how many 18 year olds actually knows these things. not I." = "Oh, I am 18, do I actually have to be responsible?" Girls like you are the reason I can't stand teen mothers. There is a tiny little paper included with your pill, maybe you should have read it, because it clearly says: "throwing up, having diarrhea, taking medicins... may increase the working of your pill. With doubts, call your doctor." I really can't stand it. Last month I read an article about a teen mom, telling exactly the same bullcrap as you. 'How was I supposed to know antibiotics may disturb my pill'. And that's raising a child, brilliant, can't be responsible for her own, but will be it for another person. Ffs...

IT IS TOO YOUR FAULT THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW!! It's not your doctor's responsibility to educate you. It's their responsibility to help you stay healthy. It's YOUR responsibility to educate yourself, read the damn label, and do any research you can. Is that how you're going to act when your child gets sick and needs medicine? Are you not going to read up on what you're putting into their body? You're going to be raising a baby and you can't even take responsibility for your actions. Wow. Your child is definitely in my prayers.

I'm not saying you should regret it. I'm saying you should grow the hell up before that baby gets here because your current attitude is NOT the attitude of a good parent. You take responsibility for what happens and don't walk around blaming everyone else!
