If someone is on BC, and manages to get pregnant anyway, but doesn't figure it out right away so she continues to take the BC, how at-risk would that be?

I'm not talking about taking BC through the 2nd trimester, I'm suggesting a few weeks at most.

  • there are slight risks.. but your OB should be able to give you more information and monitoring to make sure the baby is ok. The risks are there but if you only took it for a few weeks then the chances are minimal that anything happened to the fetus. Good luck!
