• I got pregnant while taking the pill but I'm not sure of the statistics of it all. I don't believe it is 99% effective.
  • My advice to you is: Don't trust statistics. Ever. Statistics can probably prove every side of a story if someone is good enough at using them for his or her own benefit/purposes. What you need to look for .... is the trend in the statistics.
  • 99% is not 100%. 99% effective means that 1 out of every 100 fail. 99% effective means 10 out of every 1000. It means 10,000 out of every 1,000,000 (1 million). That is quite a lot.
  • I took the pill and I never got pregnant. I stopped because of the nasty side effects. You're basically fooling your body and infusing it with a mega dose of estrogen! that's not natural! About 9-10 mos in I started to feel depressed, I gained 20lbs, was constantly hungry and felt like I had PMS all the friggin time! It was not a good feeling. My boyfriend and I have since decided to use condoms and it's been great! Don't mess up your beautiful body for the sake of having sex. I'm saying this from experience.
  • factors effect the effectiveness of the pill for example if you miss one thats obviously bad if u take antibiotics at the same time the effectiveness decreases and same with too much vitamin c (randomly) and some people aren't very careful at remembering to take it or are not informed about things that effect the pill that leads to more people becoming pregnant.
  • An acquaintance of mine got pregnant while taking the pill because she had to take antibiotics and did not use an additional form of birth control. Nothing man made is ever perfect. The only guaranteed way to prevent pregnancy and STDs is abstinence.
