If you are taking the pill, and you are horrible at being consistant with your pills and even miss pills frequently, what are the chances you can get pregnant?

Ok, i have always wondered this???

I am currently taking tri-cyclen (21) . And according to my research this pill does not let your ovaries produce eggs at all. correct??? So if this is true, if i miss pills frequently before my ovulation time, does this mean my ovaries will decide to release an egg, therefore increasing my chances of getting pregnant on the pill?? I have always wondered this, as i am having some frequent urination and bloating, and I have not drank any water today, but continue to pee (in large quantity's). Please help!!!!! Thanks!!!

Tenille - Here's a link to information on how contraceptives in pill form work. For average users there is about an eight percent failure rate.

If you're "horrible" at staying on a schedule than you may want to find another birth control method. http://healthcenter.ucdavis.edu/topics/contraception/choosing.html

It would also be beneficial to learn more about emergency contraceptives:

Hope these help! Pat
