I've had several friends who have gotten pregnant from missing a day or two, and one who became pregnant after being off her pill for only 10 days. I have been on the pill for the past 6 years (I'm 22 now). Over the last year I've gotten pretty bad about remembering to take it every day, and have maybe taken half of the pack in the last month. Still not pregnant somehow. Like seriously, I have no idea how I'm not pregnant. It's kind of insane how irresponsible I've been with remembering to take these things and I don't know how I've managed to get this far without getting knocked up. I know my mom had said that it took her a while to get pregnant with me when she stopped taking birth control, and my mom's mom suffered several miscarriages in between the children she did have so I don't know if maybe that is a factor, but my doctor doesn't have any openings until August so I figured I would see if anyone had any input since I've never talked to anyone who has experienced this. I'd like to have kids eventually, but I've just always assumed that I was too young to be concerned about infertility.
