Why do I hear so much about people getting pregnant on the pill but don’t know anyoneWatch
Also remember the pill does not protect against STDs so you should only use it on its own in a stable relationship with someone you know well and trust (in an ideal world those are the only people we have sex with, but I'm realistic!).
If you know you can stick to taking the pill at the regular time every day without fail it should be over 99 percent reliable.
If taken accurately at the right time each day then it's 99% effective.
Also certain antibiotics, throwing up soon after taking etc. It's quite effective when taken properly.
I never had any scares on the pill but the stories did shake me a bit and that's why I ultimately switched to the implant
But if you're not a forgetful dumbo like me, you're perfectly fine. Just be careful if you ever want to switch brands. Some brands cancel each other out so you shouldn't be having sex during the transition period.
