Can the birth control pill cause a miscarriage?
- Yes it can. I didn't know I was pregnant and kept taking my
pills and then had a lot of bleeding at once, so I went to the Dr.
and was told that I had a miscarriage. So, if you know you are
pregnant STOP taking your pills immediately.
- Here's something to think about. If you are on birth control
pills, you shouldn't get pregnant to begin with. They say it's
99.9% effective when used correctly, but you also can't prove that
someone used every single pill when they were supposed to and as
directed (without taking meds that can counteract the birth control
pills) so that .1% is probably just there as a precaution. If
you're so forgetful that you can't commit to taking the pill like
you should, go on the birth control patch instead. You only have to
change it once a week, and just sometime within your change day.
You don't have to change it at noon every time the way you have to
take birth control at the same time every day. The fact is that if
you're taking your pills every day when you happen to be pregnant,
you made a mistake somewhere. Taking 8 of some birth control pills
in 24 hours is used as emergency contraception, and you probably
won't get pregnant if it's within about 3 days of the unprotected
sex. Basically, it'll cause your period to start. But mind you, you
have to take 8 PILLS in 24 HOURS for that to work. If it was as
simple as just taking one normal birth control pill, I doubt
emergency contraception would require 8 normal birth control pills.
However, if you think you might be pregnant for any reason, call
your doctor, take a pregnancy test, and stop taking your pills.
Pills that alter your hormones can be severely detrimental to a
- The morning after pill is essentially a high dose of birth
control pills. Yes, the pill can cause miscarriage, but I don't
advise doing it except under the direction of your doctor.
- No. There is no medical evidence to suggest that taking birth
control pills will harm the baby or cause a miscarriage.
- There is a possibility yes but there is a even higher
possibility of birth defects or deformities with the baby. So stop
taking birth control if you're pregnant hun. See your doctor for a
- Only the morning after pill will cause spontaneous abortion but
stop taking BC pill if pregnant. Your body will produce all
hormones necessary to allow the fetus to implant. No need to help
- Do not take birth control pills if you are pregnant. This can
damage your baby. If you want an abortion then go to your local
clinic and tell them this. Don't try to abort your self. This could
lead to death.
- No. They will most likely cause birth defects if anything at
all. If you do not want the baby, consider adoption. There are
couples who are desperate for children, you would be appreciated
and you would have the chance to give the gift of a lifetime to
both the parents and your child.
