    GF thought she'd got pregnant while on the pill. Was just a late period. If you're worried - go and see a doctor?

    No, but I'm not an option. Been on it for about 8 months and it's been awesome =)

    No, but again I don't fit any of your options. I've been on it for just under a year with no problems at all.

    oops sorry for not giving that option! haven't the faintest idea whether I can edit the poll either.... oh well. And btw, I'm not crazily worried about being pregnant or whatever, I just get very paranoid about the reliability of contraception! Hence I was just curious to see if there really has been anyone who got pregnant even when using the pill absolutely perfectly.

    I wasn't an option either, but been on it almost a year and not been pregnant. We trust it, I know it can happen but it's very unlikely.

    Yes. I took my minipill religiously, at the same time every day, and ended up having an ectopic pregnancy. Very bad times indeed.

    Four years, no pregnancies, no pregnancy scares. No other contraception used, except when on anti-biotics.
