I'm not 100% sure that I am pregnant, but I am pretty sure... is it bad to continue taking the pill until I go to the doctor? Can the pill effect or harm the baby?

If you are, you should stop the pill immedietly, and if you're not sure and continue to have intercourse, use a condom just in case. Take care of your body as if you were preg. Take care, keep me posted.

in my opinion, which is completely unproffesional... going off the pill will screw you up a lot so you won't want to do that unless you are sure you're pregnant. Take a test if it's late enough in your cycle and if it comes back negative trust it until you have reason to do otherwise. The instructions with the pills I use say that if you miss a period you can continue taking your pills for the next month but to see a doctor to rule out pregnancy if you miss a second period. I have studdied up quite a bit (after many times of missing pills and thinking I was pregnant) and I have read that there is only a very small chance the pill will have a negative effect on an early pregnancy. Go to the doctor and ask for a test and advice if you have good reason to think you are pregnant. Good luck!

Lauren, I have read many times that when a girl gets pregnant on the pill she almost always doesn't know and continues to take the pill. It isn't supposed to hurt the baby, but I'm not sure how long you can do it for. From what I've read taking it even for a couple of months shouldn't cause harm. However, I don't know if the pill affects pregnancy test results. Also I've read it is better to finish a whole pack before stopping the pill cuz that could mess you up and maybe cause more problems for the baby. Are you on the reminder pills right now?

Yes.. the final week/period/sugar? pills....
