Although it may be difficult, it is possible to become pregnant before your period on birth control. Typically, a birth control pill will keep a woman’s cycle fairly regulated. However, if she begins missing pills, her cycle will not necessarily correspond with the pack that she is taking.

For this reason, you may find that becoming pregnant before your period is a possibility even if you are taking birth control pills. However, it is highly unlikely that you will become pregnant at all if you are taking your pills correctly. Because there is only a 0.01% fail rate when it comes to birth control pills, becoming pregnant while taking them correctly is unlikely.

Although-it-may-be-difficult-it-is-possible-to-become-pregnant-before-your-period-on-birth-controlIf you are looking to avoid pregnancy, you should make sure that you are taking your birth control pills correctly. This will help you to make sure that you do not have a high risk of becoming pregnant unknowingly.

While birth control pills will prevent pregnancy, they will not protect your from STDs. This is something to keep in mind while you are having sexual relations and you may find it necessary to use a condom along with your birth control pills.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
