Can birth control be harmful if you are pregnant and do not know it?
Myth: I've heard that the pill causes birth defects. The Truth: The pill does not cause birth defects or affect the health of future children
If you are taking birth control and become pregnant and don't know that you are will it harm the fetus?
taking birth control if you may be or are pregnant can and will harm the baby. A friend of mine was pregnant and took a pack of birth control pills to terminate the pregnancy, and it worked. so the answer is yes.
A pregnancy test would be appropriate.
Take a pregnancy test
If you're on the birth control patch and think you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. The patch does not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test.
It's possible to be pregnant, on birth control, and not know it. If so, you'll just stop the birth control when the pregnancy is discovered.
FIRST, if you are on depo, you shouldn't be trying to get pregnant, as it is a BIRTH CONTROL drug. Not only because its obvious if your taking it your avoiding pregnancy, but also if you get pregnant while on birth control, or after getting off birth control, it can lead to defects, miscarages, and other things that are a direct cause of being on birth controll. To be safe, you should get off birth… Read More
If use of birth control is continued while pregnant, your hormones will go into turmoil, and you will more than likely lose your pregnancy.
If you were pregnant and didn't know it and still took your borth control would you still start your period because of the birth control?
If your idea of birth control is an abortion then maybe, otherwise no.
Pregnancy Test, or if you didnt use a condom or birth control.
I was pregnant and i didnt know about it. And usually birth control makes you bloat. Well come to find out i was pregnant. So dont ever let anyone tell you that birth control is 100% effective. it depends on your body and how your body reacs to the b/c. THanks Viktoria New Orleans
Then you are pregnant. Birth control pills will not have major side effects on the fetus, but it is best to stop taking them as soon as you know you are pregnant.
How likely am i to be pregnant My fianc and I had unprotected I'm not on birth control and he did not pull out This happened twice Is it likely I'm pregnant?
There is a 50% chance that you are pregnant if your fiancee and you had unprotected sex, you are not on birth control and he did not pull out. If this happened twice, it is 50% likely that you are pregnant but the only way you will know for sure is by taking a pregnancy test.
No birth control method, save abstinence, is 100% effective. If, after a light or missed period, you take a pregnancy test and it comes back positive, you're probably pregnant.
All of them! If you are trying to get pregnant you do not want to take birth control pills. Their whole purpose is to prevent pregnancy.

Can you know if your pregnant before your period I was taking antibiotics with my Birth Control and i threw up 3days in a row. I really need to know.?
Antibiotics can decrease the effectiveness of the pill. It is very possible to get pregnant while taking andtibiotics and birth control pills at the same time. See your doctor.
There is no evidence to support that claim. It sometimes happens that woman is pregnant and keeps taking birth control ills because she doesn't know that she is pregnant. But if a woman find's out that she is pregnant she should stop taking the pills. It depends on the type of pill. If you take Trivora, yes. If you take a different kind, no.
The only way you would know if you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test or getting your blood drawn and checked for a beta hcg level.
I don't know if it's necessarily harmful, but it's ineffective if you're trying to prevent pregnancy. You might as well be not taking the pills at all if it's that sporadically.
If you are pregnant and do not know you are and are still taking birth control will this have any effects on the pregnancy?
No. The pill has no effect on a developing baby.
condom and birth control.......... but just to be safe pull out b4....... well you know
you shouldn't at all. but you can actually take your chances and have unprotected sec. It matters what birth control you are on. I know a friend that got pregnant on the pill and a friend that got pregnant on the patch. 7-10 days
If you are trying to conceive, and are having symptoms of pregnancy but your period hasn't yet returned, then test when you have symptoms. If you do not want to get pregnant, see your health care provider to start on a new method of birth control.
If you are definitely taking your pills at the same time everyday and are still having a period you should be okay. No method is 100% so I would recommend if you are concerned to use 2 methods such as a condom and birth control pills. If you believe that you could be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test. There actually are pregnant women that do have a type of spotting which seems like a… Read More
Ok you need to take a test. Do you have cramps like your cycle is going to come and you know its not and having moodswings
If you're taking birth control pills you simply wait for your planned period to come. If your period doesn't come, you should go to the doctor or take a home pregnancy test. If you're taking any other birth control methods, such as the depo provera shot, I encourage you to see your doctor if you think you might be pregnant.
You really should read the packet or consult a doctor to know the chances of getting pregnant while on it.
It sounds like normal birth control. Technically it could take up to a month for your birth control to be in full effect. But this could be different based on they types of birth control you take, This information should be located within the packaging of your birth control. It is a hormone therapy. If you are concerned about becoming pregnant while starting your birth control you should use another form of contraception (condoms). Or… Read More
If your on some form of birth control dont you automatically get periods how can you tell when your pregnant if you get automatic bleeding?
I know about the pill. I have know women (not many) that have gotten pregnant while on the pill, but as soon as they got pregnant they no longer had any periods. I hope that this helps:)
Not long, I know someone who missed 2 pills and got pregnant, or so she says. In the instructions for the pills it says exactly how many.
I have one & I'm pretty sure it can. I'm still seeking proper treatment & the only response I'm getting just to avoid surgery, is birth control. The question is, why I'm taking birth control, if I never been pregnant? I was hospitalized for a week, with this same cyst since 18. Now I'm 25 still goin through this problem. Besides, when taking birth control it can possibly smaller the cyst, but when it does… Read More
I also wanna know is it working the same way as depo?
Does taking prednisone as well as penicillin while on birth control increase your risk of becoming pregnant?
I don't know about Prednisone, but antibiotics lowers the effectiveness of birth control pills. It is much easier to get pregnant on the pill if you are taking antibioitics. You need to use a back up method for sex while taking antibiotics. I'm not sure about Prednisone, but you should talk to your doctor and find out what effect it has on birth control.
All birth control methods have a failure rate, including Depo. The only way to know is to have a pregnancy test done to determine if you are pregnant.
Yes, it is rare but it can happen. They may still get their period while pregnant or believe birth control is preventing them from getting their period.
Yes its safe. I don't know what kind of "safe" you're talking about if its about getting pregnant then no if you stop taking them you will most likely get pregnant.
The same way you'd know if you were pregnant normally: your period completely stops or you test positive on a pregnancy test. Pregnancy is not visually apparent approximately until the third month. Implanon is extremely effective with a 1% failure rate, according to Planned Parenthood. I would recommend always using a condom with a partner, even with Implanon birth control, to eliminate any possible birth control failure and to protect yourself from STD's.
I know that after taking the Depo Provera birth control shot for more than two years it may be hard to become pregnant for the following years after that. As for regular birth control pills, I've never heard of these causing infirtility whatsoever.
Negative urine test and a negative blood test but period is stil late and feeling really pregnant Clothes are starting not to fit and your moods are flying out of control?
are you wanting to be pregnant? my friend done this when she convinced herself she was pregnant. she even produced "milk". just a suggestion. no, im not "wanting" to be pregnant. its just the thing that i was on birth control, took antibiotics, and now i feel like this. ive been on this birth control for awhile and took antibiotics with it. i know its just not the medication...
As far as i know from my doctor no it is not harder to get pregnant. You should let your body be off the pill/needle for about 3 months before trying to get pregnant from what my doctor told me.
If you get pregnant and you dont know until a month in and your taking birth control can that harm the baby at all?
I think the moment you think your pregnant you should talk to your doctor. Only your family doctor knows what's best for you and knows the facts you need to know about being pregnant. If you think your pregnant you should take a home pregnancy test, if it comes up positive than you should stop taking your birth control pills and make an appointment with your family doctor. He/She will discuss your options.
If you are getting intimate with your partner and don't want to become pregnant then take yasmin birth control pill and then continue your intimacy session. You can buy yasmin pills from MifepristonePills online pharmacy at best price.
It does not help you and it will no get change you will be pregnant and it's very hard to give birth try it and u can know it.
Could the absence of spotting after missing three birth control pills in a row be an early sign that you are pregnant?
look. you can get pregnanton birth control. if your spottin and your not on your period, then go see your gynecologist or family doc n let them know. it's probably nothing
You know there is a risk of you have sex so there aren't really any accidents. If you use the birth control as it's supposed to be used and still get pregnant I guess one can call that an accident.
As soon as you know that you are pregnant then you need to stop the pills asap. still taking the pills could cause adverse effects on the fetus.
If you forgot to take birth control one day and took two the next day and that same day had unprotected sex can you be pregnant?
I would not worry about it. Theoretically you can pregnant depending on the week you forget to take bc. But I know stories of people that stop taking birth control and don't ovulate for months! Think about all the pills they forgot.
You did not get your period while you were taking your sugar pills you either could possibly be pregnant, or your birth control is making you have light or no period at all. You should take a pregnancy test or visit a physician to take a pregnancy test to know your answer at your convenience. Or if you have been on birth control for over 3 months, and take you take your birth control everyday… Read More
You don't really know that the hamster is pregnant until a few days before she gives birth or when he gives birth.
Will it harm your baby if you just found out you're 3 weeks pregnant and are currently on Ritalin and were taking birth control pills because you didn't know you were pregnant?
Not too sure about the Ritalin but I do know that there has been no evidence that taking birth control in early pregnancy without knowing that you are pregnant causes any complications although it is not reccommended to take the birth control if pregnancy is suspected hope this helps sorry I couldn't answer your ? completely Good Luck and God Bless!!
