I'm on month 2, week 2 of my pills. I've never missed a pill yet and I take it at the same time everyday. At least within 10 or 15 min of the same time. My boyfriend and I aren't ready to have kids at this time so he tries to have sex as less as possible. If I'm lucky once every week to two weeks. I told him bc pills, if taken right, are 98% effective. But I can't get him to believe me and sometimes he refuses to have sex with me. What are the chances of me getting pregnant?? What can I do to show him how effective they are??
Hi, you are right, since you take them everyday and you never miss any, you are safe, they are 98% effective, so just talk to him about it, and tell him you want to make love more often and let him read the info on the pill info pack where he says how safe they are! If you don't have it just go to the drugs A-Z on this site in the upper left corner and type in the name of your birth control and let him read that, he should get some comfort out of that and knowing you want him and he has nothing to worry about, hope this helps, Kelly
Thank you all for trying to help me. I know that he does want kids eventually. Right now he is starting a new job. One he has wanted his entire life and very well could turn into a career. As far as not wanting kids right now, he says it's just a money issue. But I know him better than he thinks. He's 23 yrs old and is simply not ready as I am not either. And I know some will say that maybe it's him being stressed out over this job but actually that's the opposite of how it is. Now he wants to 'celebrate' whereas when he wasn't enjoying himself at work he had no desire.
When we first started dating, we didn't have sex for the first 3 months. His choice. He said he wanted to see if I was the type of person he would marry before he slept with me. He has only been with one other person besides me and at first I didn't believe him because he was such a great catch but I quickly realized he was telling the truth. But after that everything was completely normal. We'd have sex 2 or 3 times a week. Then one day he just tells me we can't have sex as much anymore and he has been very adamant about it. Up until two days ago. We had sex and I thought for sure it would be at least a week before we did it again but I was surprised when he accepted my advances tonight. He is totally confusing me! Thing is though I know that since we did it twice now this week, it's definitely going to be at least another week before it happens again.
