If you are taking the pill for health reasons, then it is not morally wrong. I personally feel that it is much more wrong to bring an unwanted child into the world than to prevent conception.

You shouldn't ever think that something like that is morally wrong. If you are protecting yourself from an unwanted pregnancy, then you are doing good for yourself. Just like the other reply to this question, it is more morally wrong to bring an unwanted child into the world than to protect yourself from getting pregnant. Birth Control is a wonderful thing, so don't think it is wrong. :o)

I totally DO NOT think that taking the pill is morally wrong. I agree with the people above in that this world is full of children that are not being taken care of the right way because their parents were irresponsible, I am a care taker of some of those children. Is it morally wrong for a child not be wanted?? That is the question you should be asking yourself...

This is something that you will have to decide for yourself; some religions, such as Catholicism, do believe that taking birth control pills is a sin, so if you asked a Catholic this question, he or she would tell you that it is morally wrong. Other people would say what has already been said above. As a physician, I would urge that anyone taking birth control pills would do so as part of a committed relationship and would not smoke while taking them. Also, it is very important to understand that they do not prevent against STDs including HIV.

The Scriptures do not condemn birth control. From a Biblical point of view, then, whether a husband and wife choose to use some nonabortive method of contraception is really a personal decision. (Awake 9/07)

What can I do if I always have the worst cramps and pains when I'm on my period but am not allowed to take birth control?

See a gynecologist to figure out what's wrong. If it is something that can be fixed, they'll fix it. And if there's nothing wrong, they'll give you pain killers. If you need birth control pills you can take those too, as even the religions that forbid birth control allow birth control pills when used therapeutically (assuming it is religious constrains that forbid the pills) because God doesn't want you to suffer.

If your 4 weeks pregnant can birth control pills still be effective?

No, birth control pills are not effective at 4weeks. They are only effective before you engage in sexual activities as they render you infertile (temporarily) as long as you are using them. Also the morning after pill is only effective 72 hours after the sexual act. So at 4 weeks one is very pregnant indeed. Unless one aborts which is illegal and morally wrong.

Yes, they are called birth control pills. if your'e saying that if you had sex and the person that you did it with spermed in you and now you are trying to prevent it, probably not, but if you are already on birth control, probably, but other than that I don't know.

Is there anything morally wrong and why is it wrong?

yes, there is. Some would argue that the taking of life (killing someone) is morally wrong. A counter-argument might be if in self-defence, the taking of a life might be morally right, since it preserves another's life. However, this does not contradict the point that the taking of a life is still morally wrong. Indeed, the taking of a life can be both morally right and morally wrong.

What if you take four birth control pills at a time?

Its not a good idea to take four birth control pills at a time to try and prevent pregnancy because if you already are pregnant, not even four pills can help you now and on top of that you wouldn't want to harm the baby if you already are pregnant. I know someone who had a physically deformed baby because she continued using her birth control pills while pregnant. She thought she would eventually end the pregnancy but she was so wrong. You should throw out your pack if you've missed four pills and start up a new one as soon as your period has come and gone.

If you take your birth control pills perfectly every time but still get your period on the hormone pills only and never on the sugar pills could something be wrong?

You probably need a different kind of pill. The one you are taking isn't the correct hormone dosage for you. Talk to your doctor and they will help you get the right one for your body. I'd say to use a back up method of birth control in the meantime, just to be safe.
