Our expert says:
Women do fall pregnant on contraception as no contraception is 100% failproof. 1-2% of women fall pregnant after a sterilization ( because the tube is not tied off properly) , 1% fall pregnant with an IUD ( mostly because the IUD falls out or shifts or does not work properly), 0.3% with hormonal contraceptive injection, 5 % with the pill ( due to skipped pills or absorbtion problems - taken with antibiotics or when you have diarrhoea etc) 14% with condoms ( due to breakage or slipping)
