Started Pills and no back-up method

“I didn’t know that 7 days after starting the pill i had to have a back up method. Know I don’t know if i’m pregnant and i’m still taking my birthcontrol. If I was pregnant, am I harming my baby? I’m I going to lose him? I have migranes and i been taking my medice like nothing and i’m real conserned what are going to be the consequences with my baby..”

A: Since you have a physician who prescribed you your birth control pills, this a question best left to them. Each doctor’s office has their own procedure and a nurse could likely answer this question over the phone. That being said, there is evidence that shows that use of birth control pills in early pregnancy is unlikely to harm a fetus. In the meantime if you are concerned you could always take a pregnancy test.
