Find a Conversation

Seriously, if you weren't planning on having children, you were using BC, yes? I am confused as to how a pregnancy can be a "surprise". Either you are using BC or you aren't. If you aren't using BC and you get pregnant, where is the surprise?
I had this conversation with my SIL. She "found herself pregnant" two months before her wedding and was sincerely shocked. I asked her, "Were you using BC?"
Her answer, "No. But we weren't planning on getting pregnant."
ME: "Well, if you weren't using birth control, how can you be shocked at getting pregnant?"
Her answer: "I didn't think I could get pregnant. We've never used birth control."
Um, okay. Ah, let's see, herpes, hep c, other STD's, HIV, oh never mind.
If you had an "accidental" or unplanned pregnancy, was it due to a BC failure or other factors.
Your input is greatly appreciated.
