    Has anybody ever heard of somebody who was taking birth control regularly and responsibly and still became pregnant? If I'm with a girl I know who I trust to be both clean of disease and taking birth control regularly, I can't say I've ever used a condom. Literally. I'm way too confident in that 99.7 - 99.9%, and I'd like a reality check if anyone has one to offer. :dunno:

    two of my friends (married) went overseas for a holiday. the 18 hour time difference made enough of a difference that they now have a healthy baby boy - I'm guessing she continued to take the pill at the same local time every day, rather than figuring out when 24 hours after her last dose should be.

    doesn't strictly count but it's easy for things to catch you unawares!

    yeh i wouldn't have believed her either, except i overheard a third party story that was rather convincing.


    but really, what are the odds? there must be something in the water.

    my roommate told me that birth control really IS 100% effective if used completely properly. i think the .3% is to take into account people who take it at slightly different times or other factors or whatever. she said it's just a huge liability if you say anything is 100% effective :dunno:

    I've known two women who used their BC religiously on time and they got knocked up by their boyfriend's who weren't wearing condoms because they "didn't think he had to."

    which is precisely why I advise guys to actively participate in taking precautions to prevent pregnancy.

    Wait... wait. You have to take BC at the same time every day for it to be effective?

    Fuck.

    The shot is more effective, and more difficult to fuck up

    Yes, obviously both of them were taking their BC pills wrong after 4 years :rolleyes: That's the ONLY explanation.

    a lot of the "taking it properly" variable includes things like knowing how antibiotics or a stomach virus affects how it works.


    you can take it the same time every day, and still not be taking it properly with all the clauses.

    I get it, I know there are tons of ways it can backfire, I just find it hilarious this kid seems to think that birth control will always stop children from happening.

    if you're shitting or puking your brains out, that little pill you took at 4pm wont be absorbed like it should, and should be counted as missed.
