Just wondering how many out there was using contraception when they fell pregnant and which type failed? Were you taking it properly if it was the pill?

DS1 was conceived due to a dates/maths/rhythm fail.
Had a condom fail with DS#3.
DS2 was planned.
DD1 (4th) was a missed vasectomy appointment and I had a raging case of the "need-it-nows"
Felt a little bit teary/worried with conceiving DS3 as I felt I would miss out on DS2's wonder year.
Got over that pretty quick.
All other misadventures were happily well-received.

Mine was planned but I know my sister was the result of my parents experimenting with a rough rider condom (TMI!) when Dad thought the beads were for HIS pleasure and wore the condom inside out, and presto - along comes my sister.

thanks for your replies. I have just had baby #3 and all three planned pregnancies we fell preg first month. now i am worried about having an accidental bub now our family is complete, I just got implanon put in, but my obs reckons vasc have a 1 in 300 failure rate. Doesnt sound very safe for such a permanent method.

It was the pill, and I was taking it properly at the time. Quite often in the past I'd miss a day or two, but I didn't worry about it because i'd been taking it like that successfully for 5 years, and due to an infection when I was younger, I have "fertility" problems anyway.
In fact, in a previous relationship, at one point I had to take a break from the pill for 3 months because it wasn't agreeing with me, and nothing happened... I wasn't worried, I knew it would be very hard for me to conceive.
So I kind of figured that maybe this one was just really stubborn! Or just really wanted to be. My DP hasn't been worried about miscarriage at all, even early on he said "if it got this far, i'm sure it's not going to give up without one hell of a fight". I like the idea of a "surprise baby", i'm going to start calling it that, instead of accidental or unplanned.

Our DD4 was a surprise baby. Conceived after a broken condom and MAP!
Feel really guilty about taking the MAP now as she was obviously meant to be here and is such a blessing. At the time though our twins were only a year old and it was a bit daunting having another.
Having said that, we've gone on to having DD5!

I became pregnant and didn't know while on Depo injection. I had been on it for several years and had started to have small amounts of bleeding on it (usually you don't).
Then one day during what I though was a routine bleed I passed several huge clots for a couple of days- must of miscarried. It wasn't upsetting as I didn't know and at that point didn't want a baby.
I think to be truly safe you might have to use 2 forms of contraceptive.

My pregnancy was planned... but before we were trying I was on the pill and we still used condoms the reason being that my Mum fell pregnant with twins on the pil land then again with my little brother on the pill (when the doctors told her she couldnt get pregnant)

My aunt has managed to get pregnant on the pill twice. Once she got her time zones wrong on an overseas trip and took it late and the other time she's recently had gastro. So both were not so much the pill not working but not taking it right.

I know someone who has gotten pregnant on the pill for all of her children.
If I really didn't want to get pregnant like was the case up until Dec last year, I would have used 2 forms.

My first 2 were planned. This one was a result of getting the dates wrong.
2 of my friends fell pregnant on the pill and sadly had terminations

When I was in my late teens I became pregnant twice due to condoms breaking.

I have a friend who has had three surprise pregnancies, the last conceived whilst on the pill. Not bad for someone who maybe ovulates three times a year.
I am a surprise pill baby to my mother who was told she couldn't have children, but to be fair, she was given fertility medication to treat endo and they didn't think to mention that. My brother was also a surprise baby - condoms I think. My sister is the only planned child
