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)

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.

No. The pills are all the same. They are just labeled to help you keep track

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.
