Taking BC While Not Knowing You Re PREGGO

worried - March 27

Let's just say that if I was taking birth control (pills) and then about a month later I found out that I was pregnant... how much damage would it cause to the fetus and what kind of damage? Would it cause a miscarriage? THANKS

 

okay - March 27

My friend took BC pills for the first 2.5 months of her PG (I don't know how, but she missed her not getting her period) and when she missed the second one them she took a test and it was positve. That was a shock. Her baby was totally fine and healthy and he's a beautiful 9 month old now! The only thing I know for sure is that with the combo pill it weakens your uterine lining (that's why the AF's are lighter) so that if conception occurs then it hinders the implantation of the blastocyst so it'll come out with the bleed. If you think you are PG stop taking the pills (there is no point anyway at that time). From my experience there is no reason to worry but they may be others who will say different.
