Not today. In the beginning when it first came there were risks but today it's safe. it's important you tell the doctor your medical history though since there are different types of pills.
Birth control pills all work differently for each individual. Some are specifically designed to help with things like cramps or acne. You should definitely talk to a doctor about what might be best for you. Remeber, there is no perfect pill for a person, but you can get pretty close Hi, The best c…ontraceptive pill really depends on you and your body and how well it works for you. Your Doctor is the best person to talk to about this. Most women will do well on a wide variety of birth control pills. The first pill that the prescriber chooses is a guess, based on the most commonly accepted pills. If you have side effects on that one, the prescriber can change based on any complaints you have. The Ovral L tablet is safe and very good. (MORE)
Birth control pills work by giving your body additional estrogenand progesterone, at different amounts during the month. Thisincrease in estrogen and progesterone works via a negative feedbackloop; in other words, it tells your body that there is a lot ofestrogen and progesterone and therefore it ne…eds to shut off thepathways that produce that estrogen and progesterone. To do this,the body lowers the amount of another hormone, FSH. This hormone,also known as follicle-stimulating hormone, not only affects therelease of estrogen and progesterone, but also is necessary forfollicle development. Birth control pills decrease the amount ofFSH, making it impossible for your follicles to develop.Consequently, these follicles can never mature and release the egg. (MORE)
You can't kill yourself with birth control pills. An overdose will also not cause abortion or infertility.
In terms of safety concerns, or effectiveness? As far as safety, as in least dangerous side effects, COCPsA are the safest. The Combined Oral Contraceptive Pill (COCP), often referred to as "the Pill", is a combination of an estrogen (oestrogen) and a progestin (progestogen), taken by mouth to in…hibit normal fertility. The most effective form is Implanon, but that's not a pill. Your best bet is to stick with the COCP and take exactly as directed. As with any medication, negative side effects can occur. The pill can cause weight gain and slightly increase chances of blood clots, heart attack, and stroke. Especially if you're over 35 and/or you smoke. (MORE)
Answer . No, all birth control is a a hormone that blocks the onset of pregnacy. If your already prego then it cannot stop the natural order of things to happen. If you do not want to have a baby Im sure you know the one option you have, abortion, if you cant do that then your other option is to… have the baby and give it up for adoption. Good luck.. Though it is not generally known, birth control pills can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting. Depending on when you believe life occurs, this can definitely be considered killing a life, no matter what other label you put on it. (MORE)

Birth control pills can be started at anytime in your cycle, inwhich case you'll need to use a back up method of contraception,like abstinence from vaginal sex or condoms, for at least sevendays. The other option is to start the pill with your period (or thefirst Sunday following the first day of… your period). If youstart the pill on the first day of bleeding, you'll have immediateprotection from pregnancy; otherwise, you should use a back upmethod for seven days as described above. The time in your cycle when you start the pill has no impact onside effects like irregular bleeding. Traditionally, women in the US started the birth control pill onSunday. This has an obvious disadvantage - your health careprovider's office is closed on Sunday, and many women start theirpill late when they notice too late that they're out of pills. Doyourself a favor and consider starting on a weekday, as they do inmost other countries. (MORE)

Could taking birth control pills and substituting sugar pills with real ones all month round be harmful?
It would be pointless. The sugar pills do not contain anything in them to keep you from getting pregnant. The placebos (or sugar pills) are there as "reminders" to keep you in the habit of taking them and so when you know to start a new pack. The sugar pills are not needed during your period,that's …why they are sugar pills. If you take the placebos when you are supposed to be taking the "active" ones, they are inaffective and you might as well not be taking them at all. (MORE)
If the birth control fully works, there won't BE a fetus, birth control will do nothing about an impregnated egg or the baby that it will result in.
The sugar pills basically don't have any hormones such as progestinand ethinyl estradiol which allows you to have your period. Thesugar pills are normally taken on the 4th week of your birthcontrol cycle. You don't need to take the sugar pills as guidedbecause either way you will have a period with …or without talkingthe sugar pills on the 4th week. The sugar pills also keeps you ona schedule when on a birth control pill since many do not take themresponsibly which may result in an unplanned pregnancy. You can also skip the sugar pills and go right into your next packof active pills and just have no periods.

Certainly, if he's doing so on a regular basis! If he's just gobbled one or two, no worries. If he's eaten an entire pack, and it were my kid, I'd call poison control or the Public Health-line, or check with his paediatrician.
If you are taking birth control pills and become pregnant continue to take the pills can it harm the baby?
If you ARE pregnant- you have no need to take birth control, you cannot get 'more pregnant' by not taking them or anything like that. Stop taking the birth control pills and start taking prenatal vitamins. Studies are linking birth control pills to being harmful to your baby- but even if they are no…t harmful- why continue to take them if you are already pregnant? Again, you cannot get pregnant with multiple babies at once like one now, one in a month or anything like that. Once you are pregnant, you are pregnant and birth control will not do anything positive for your little one and is pointless to continue using. (MORE)
Forgetting to take the pill on a regular basis. Also, there is risk of blood clots, especially in those who are smokers.
yess..minors can get birth control. you can go to a local free clinic or go to planned parenthood, they base the cost of the pills on your income, so any minor can get them pretty cheap.
Why did you do that? Did you miss yesterday's pill and just take it with today's? If so, then no, you're fine. That is actually what you are supposed to do. However, if you question anything, your pharmacist is your best friend!
Yes, but you need a prescription from a doctor or nurse practitioner. Birth control pills are not sold over-the-counter.
Women use the birth control pill when they want to avoid pregnancy and for other conditions like heavy or painful periods. You take them daily, regardless of whether you have sex that day.
At any pharmacy. Just walk in and ask for it by name. However if you are underage they will not sell it to you.
Through a doctor. There's always Planned parenthood too. By seeing your DR or gynocologist. You have it prescribed by a doctor.
The vaginal ring, the Merina IUD, Today Sponge & condoms, BC Patch, rhythm method. There are many things that can be used in place of The Pill that are just as effective when used consistently.
Due to the estrogen in birth control pills, it probably will make a mans breasts grow.
The birth control pill appears to lower the risks of some times of cancer while increasing the risk of other types. What the original author of this answer didn't mention is the updated review by IARC published in 2012. She also omitted information about the types of cancers for which the birth co…ntrol pill appears to lower the risk. Judge for yourself by reading the document, found in related links. That review notes the following in its summary of the current research on cancer and birth control pills: There are increased risks for cancer of the breast in young women among current and recent users only, for in-situ and invasive cancer of the uterine cervix, and for cancer of the liver in populations that are at low risk for HBV infection (this risk is presumably masked by the large risk associated with HBV infection in HBV-endemic populations). In addition, for cancer of the uterine cervix, the magnitude of the associations is similar for in-situ and invasive disease, and the risks increase with duration of use, and decline after cessation of use. For cancer of the endometrium, the Working Group concluded that oral contraceptives are protective against endometrial cancer, that the magnitude of the protective effect increases with duration of use, and that it lasts for at least two decades after cessation of use. There is also evidence that the level of the protective effect is proportional to the progestogen potency of the preparation, and inversely proportional to its estrogen potency. For cancer of the ovary, the Working Group concluded that oral contraceptives are protective against ovarian cancer. The reduction in risk increases with duration of use and persists for at least 30 years after cessation of use. The level of protection is at least as great for newer, lower dose preparations or for older, higher dose oral contraceptives. The reduced risk is seen in women with and without a genetic predisposition to ovarian cancer. For cancer of the colorectum, the Working Group concluded that it is unlikely that the use of oral contraceptives increases the risk of cancers of the colon or rectum. The aggregate information suggests that oral contraceptives may reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. The Working Group concluded that the use of oral contraceptives is unlikely to alter the risk of cancer of the thyroid, lung, stomach, urinary tract, gallbladder, pancreas, or the risk of lymphoma, cutaneous melanoma, and tumours of the central nervous system.. Yes. Combined Oral Contraceptives are classified as carcinogenic to humans by the World Health Organization â¢The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer research agency of WHO, in its press release of the 29th of July 2005, informed of the publication of a monograph on the carcinogenicity of combined estrogen-progestogen oral contraceptives (COC) and combined estrogen-progestogen menopausal therapy (HRT), based on the conclusions of an international Working Group of 21 scientists from 8 countries. â¢ Estrogen-progestogen oral contraceptives were classified in the Group 1 of carcinogenic agents, after a thorough review of the published scientific evidence. â¢This evaluation was made on the basis of increased risks for cancer of the breast among current and recent users only, for cancer of the cervix and for cancer of the liver in populations that are at low risk for hepatitis B viral infection. The IARC also noted decreases in the incidence of cancer of the ovary, endometrium, and colon/rectum. (MORE)

All medicines carry some risk, though it is usually small. Contraceptives may cause bloating, swelling, and mood changes. In rare cases they may cause stroke. There is some evidence that some types of contraceptives may cause cancer. Before taking any medicine, you should talk to a health care professional about what you're doing. He or she can answer your questions and discuss possible alternatives. um, actually no it's not. birth control obviously prevents unwanted pregnancies but has other benefits as well. The pill for example helps with acne and helps regulate periods and makes them lighter. There really aren't too many negative aspects to it. The only thing might be that some religions are against it. Catholicism for example. (MORE)

Monophasic birth control pills have a constant does of both Estrogen and Progestin in each hormonally active pill.

The birth control pill gets out of your system within a couple of days. (That's why you have to take it daily -- it doesn't last very long). Your body will take over the hormonal cycle again within a few weeks. There's nothing that will speed this process.
