Post subject: Taking the Pill if i could be pregnant
Hi Ladies,
I was hoping for some advice as i'm clueless on what's best to do. I started my pill late this month and i have been sexually active. I have some pregnancy symptoms which could be nothing but they may not be. Do i continue taking my pill as i'm probably not pregnant and just paranoid or do i stop taking it in case i am and i cause the baby damage?

Thanks in advance
Cat

It's not advised to take the pill whilst pregnant, however in my last pregnancy i did up until 13 1/2 weeks as I didn't realise I was pregnant, my son was fine , but it was the mini pill and the effects are less for boy babies anyway, with girls it can cause genital abnormalities Question If you are pregnant a test will still work , and if it's only a few weeks then the chances are it would have no effect to carry on taking the pill, I've actually gotten pregnant 4 times on the pill in total and the other 3 I only realised when i had my break and had no bleed Question and never had any problems from it, you could stop it though and use condoms until you get a bleed though ,and then carry on as normal Question xx

The birth control pill prevents a pregnancy by preventing ovulation, and without ovulating you cannot get pregnant. You need to ovulate if you want to get pregnant. So if you are on the birth control pill, the first step in trying to get pregnant is to stop the pill. Preferably, if you want to get pregnant and you have been on the pill, you wait until the end of the birth control pill pack and then just don't start with the new pack.
