Someone told me there are a VERY small percentage of women who actually become more fertile on the pill, and I was curious about it's legitimacy.
The pill works by preventing your ovaries from releasing eggs. If there’s no egg for sperm to fertilize, then you can’t become pregnant. The pill works for ALL females.
According to the CDC, the failure rate for typical use of oral contraceptives is 9%, or 6–12 pregnancies per 100 women. That is 60–120 per 1000 women per year . This model factors in missed pills and drug interactions reducing efficacy (I think this is a bit high) The typical user of oral contraceptives will miss 1–2 pills per month. Add in the 98%-99.9% success rate of the pill just by itself (not perfect) So, I suspect that those that got pregenant while taking the pill or accidently forgot to take a pill would come up with a simplified explanation on why they got pregnant and maybe saying that "the pill" made them super fertile.
