Birth Control Efficiency

I just thought of this...

99.8% efficiency birth control = this:

20 people have sex about 50 times in a year...

Two of them may get knocked up.

birth control pill not always 100% effective working. sometime women did missing and forgot take pill few days. or they take antibiotic or medication make pill working less effect and become less strong.

Well, there are factors. For instance, there are certain medicines that can compromise the efficiency of the birth control pill. Also, if people often use the pill improperly which may not work efficiently.

After 5 years of having my tubes tied.

About a month after I was with this particular guy. I got pregnant. The pregnancy lasted about 4 months before it ruptured the tube. Believe me.. he feels like he has the super sperm.


Well... if the pill is taken correctly and same time everyday, it is very effective. Oh you can not take antibiotics while on the pill since it will lessen the effect.

Tubes tied. I have two friends that I know that have gotten pregnant besides me. One already had a healthy baby girl at the age of 40. The other girl is about 4 or 5 months pregnant she is healthy, she is 37 years old.
So I laugh when people tell me they can't get pregnant because they had their tubes tied. I'm like oh yes you can.........

People get pregnant with IUD, many do not survive. Some are born fine and some are born with the IUD embedded in them.

The varied ~95-99.9% number comes from the pearl index. I think the statistics in that is based on probability from the ideal conditions, ie. such as not being on antibiotics or other medication at the same time.

Whereas, if we look at it in individual sessions based on chance (like AD'er #1 vs AD'er #2), not everyone will start at the same starting point. The pearl index is basing on the averages of fertility between 100 women, where a single woman in that group might have higher or lower fertility than another.

This might be a "probability vs individual chance" issue, since the two terms are extraneous of each other.

Many years ago, I had a friend who claimed "I've used 5 methods of birth control and have six kids to show for it." (One set of twins.)

Finally they figured out what was causing it and hubby got a vasectomy. ;-)

Mom did too, or, very shortly after coming off. I think she came off the pill, and, the Dr told her there would be some time before she got pregnant (like 6 mos). She was pregnant within a month! lol

Yeah doctors are wrong a lot of time! A doctor told one of my boyfriend he would be dead in five years. My boyfriend was around 30 yo at the time and he lived to be 73 yo!

^^ Happens a lot with the docs here in the sticks :-) 73 is a great age as opposed to thinking you are kicking the bucket at 35. We were devastated when they first told us (my husband always wanted a large family) that was in june they told us. September we ended up pregnant again (didn't find out until december) and then my oldest popped out in July perfectly healthy and happy. Then the babies didn't stop. Although I blame my being on birth control why we ended up preggers so fast afterwards.

Point is doctors aren't always the smartest :-)

Same thing happened to my mom. She lost one baby at around 6 months into the pregnancy. Doctor said she probably would not be able to conceive, and definitely, to his thinking, would not be able to carry a baby to term.

Eighteen months later my brother was born, two years later came me, two years and 3 months later, my younger sister, and slightly less than two years after that, the youngest sister.

When she went to see the doctor with pregnancy number 4, he said "You are making medical history!!"

After 4 kids, she felt that was enough.

Here's a funny story. My mother's form of birth control.

Seems that every time after getting married that my mother played her cello in a concert, she got pregnant. After the third time (me!) Dad made her sell the cello. - No more babies or pregnancies at all.
