Have You Ever Had an Unexpected Pregnancy?

Dear Poll: Have You Ever Had an Unexpected Pregnancy?

When we become sexually active, we do everything we can to prevent ourselves from becoming pregnant. We pop pills, get shots, implants, and IUDs, wear condoms, patches, and diaphragms, all for the one, huge purpose of not getting pregnant.

I'm sure all of you have had scares before, where the condom broke, you missed a pill, or your period was late, but what I want to know is, have you ever experienced an unplanned pregnancy?

Yes I have my bf at the time was using the pull out method for about a month with no problem. One time he didn't pull out in time but he didn't tell me. I had NO idea I was pregnant until I missed my period. Thank GOD I miscarried because he is a HUGE jerk.

I know a girl who found out she had been pregnant when she miscarried. She had no idea what was going on at the time, so she went to her obgyn and her obgyn explained what happened. The girl even traced it back to her very first time AND she had taken Plan B the day afterwards, so she was a weeping mess all day after she found out, afraid that she had made it abort because she is very pro-life. Her doctor explained to her that she hadn't, that didn't mean she didn't cry though. :(

Yes. It sucked. I was on the shot at the time. Apparently, I am very fertile.

Nope, a few scares though, but thankfully they turned out to be nothing. I want kids one day and I plan on them being with my current BF but there are still too many things I want to accomplish without children before I walk down that road.

Well, I'm currently 19 and 4 months pregnant with my boyfriend. We got pregnant after only 2 months of being together! I'm so proud of my mom, though, for how well she took the news. I was her only for 11 years and my life has been basically planned out for me. Everyone's being super-supportive and wanting to help however they can. And my boyfriend's really surprised me with how much he cares about taking care of me and he's super excited for the baby. Soo I'm really hopeful everything's going to work out. It'll definitely be hard though with (lack of) money and me going to med school in a few years. I don't think I would un-do it.

No, I haven't. Had some scares though. I love babies, but I can wait before becoming a Momma! And may I take a liberal patriotic moment to say: I'm so very happy to live in a country where women still have legal control over their bodies and can make decisions for themselves as well as any unplanned or planned pregnancies. =D

Yes I did and I didn't want another child at that time in my life so I terminated it. It was the best decision for me at the time.

Yup, I was on the pill and still managed to get pregnant. Unfortunately though I miscarried.

Ive always been very paranoid about getting pregnant before it was a conscious choice. I have a LOT of friends who have had unexpected pregnancies, a few of which had only been with their partner for maybe a couple of months. Ever since I lost my virginity I have just had this thought in my head that when I tell my parents that they are going to be grandparents that I dont want them to feel even a millisecond of disappointment (and I certainly dont want the "what the hell is wrong with you?!" reaction that some of the parents have had). Luckily for me Im in my mid-20's, married and at this point my mom is point blank ASKING me when she is going to be a grandmother, so I dont imagine she'll be disappointed when I get pregnant.

I have had one very scary almost pregnancy. I don't think it would be terrible to have an unplanned pregnancy as it seems that most are that way now-a-days. Like somebody said earlier: "life is what it is"!

My husband and I got pregnant after we'd been dating only 3 months. 10 yrs later we are still together, and our son is everything to us. Plus we had one more! Planned this time. :)

I had a scare 4 years ago and took a test and everything. Was scared out of my mind! It ended up being just a late period. Now that I'm a bit older and more stable, it wouldn't be the worst thing ever, but I'm still being as careful as I can! Babies are expensive :)

Never, and my fiance and I plan to keep it that way.

No, I haven't. But I am vigilant in my use of BC. I also keep a menstrual calendar and I am regular, so I know when the ovulation period is, we double up on BC for those days, and when my period will happen to the day. Have never been more than a day or two late. :) Why are so many taking Asia84's comment personally? If she is celibate or a true virgin, she in fact will never have an unexpected pregnancy. Her statement was brief and to the point of the question, not calling out anyone or mean spirited.

All she said was 'No I generally keep my legs closed', you all are trying to start something out of NOTHING! Didn't know there were so many psychic mind readers here. She just answered the question and then SHE gets accused of being holier than thou, ha.

ugh! guess what Asia? you're not the only person on earth that doesn't have sex! But even if I don't, I don't pull the holier-than-thou card. Might I suggest you keep something else closed next time?

No, thank goodness, as I don't want children. I celebrate whenever my period arrives. LOL
