Birth Control Question Q&A


Can you get pregent if you take birth control everyday, you have your period b/c of the pills but be pregent and not know? And if you are pregent and keep taking the pills will that affect your baby?

If you take birth control pills properly (every day), the chances of getting pregnant are less than 1%. If you had your last period on time and are expecting the next period ,you can’t be sure if you are pregnant until you miss the expected period and a pregnancy test shows a positive result. Birth control pills can damage an embryo but in the first 4 weeks of pregnancy (stadium of egg), when they can be used unintentionally.

There is a principle known as : “everything or nothing”. That principle means that a bad agent can either kill the fertilized egg cell or won’t cause any damage at all.
