As per my google search I found the following… Don’t worry if you kept taking your birth control pill because you didn’t know you were pregnant. Despite years of this accident happening, there’s very little evidence that exposure to the hormones in birth control pills causes birth defects. Once you learn that you’re pregnant, stop taking the birth control pill.

I had taken alot of medicine and antibiotics thinking I was sick etc but after a week or two of feeling so shitty and nothing working I figured it out… I was so worried about it. The doctor literally looked at me and said “people smoke crack and do heroin while pregnant and pop out perfect babies they don’t deserve. I’m 99% sure you’re fine don’t worry about it”

Lmfao I will never forget it.

I think there is a lot worse things people do while pregnant and deliberately aswell.

No birth control is 100%. I got pregnant with an IUD.

You have to talk to a health professional

I don’t understand why you would? Did you not know you were pregnant and were still taking b.c.?

These questions are seriously stupid lately

Why would you want to?

I got pregnant with twins while On BC. I didn’t know until my doctor told me I was pregnant. We needed up loosing one of them.
I only found out I was pregnant because I went to the doctor. I stopped my weekly injections. I wasn’t even supposed to get pregnant because I purposely shut my ovaries down by this medicine. Didn’t even have a period (for a Surgery).
Now I have a 7 month old baby girl.

I ended up super sick. Went into er how painful it was. Was told to either flush my system out to save the baby or keep going with pain obviously it was hurting to kill the baby. I decided to flush my body out to save my baby. And my child is a teenager now. I never forget how b painful it was.

I did it with my first on accident and I just threw up non stop it was awful, its how I realized I was pregnant because I didn’t get periods regularly.

Does no one consider that women get pregnant while on BC without realizing and someone might be asking what damage it could do to the baby to continue taking BC because they were unaware they’re pregnant??
