There has been no evidence that shows that taking the pill in early pregnancy causes any birth defects to the developing fetus. They will not harm or end an existing pregnancy, but they are of no use to the pregnant woman.

If you're pregnant and don't want to be, contact your health care provider as soon as possible to talk about options; taking the birth control in the mistaken impression that it can end your pregnancy will only delay definite treatment.

No, not neccassarily but could cause birth defects if you continue taking the pill. Would highly recommend you to STOP taking it because your baby is at risk of problems.
