  • it says it wont abort the baby if you are already pregnant....

    I am actually not even sure how it works? You take it so you dont get pregnant ( after unprotected sex) but it doesnt do anything if you are already pregnant...I guess maybe it just does something to stop the sperm from getting to the egg? IDK

  • It keeps the fertilized egg from being able to implant into your uterus, I believe.

  • It forces the lining of your uterus to become in uninhabitable for a fertilized egg. In other words, it won't let an egg implant itself. If you are already pregnant, then it's already implanted, and the pill will do nothing.

  • from what i was told and read it won't make you miscarry from what the doctor told me and from what I read but it can cause birth defects. So just be careful I wouldn't think it would hurt till your three months but if your not sure I wouldn't take them. I'm not a doctor so I'm sorry but that's what the doctor told me I was on birth control with I got pregnant with my first and the doctor told me to stop taking them but I found out at 5 weeks pregnant so like I said if your unsure always be safe and talk to the doctor they only thing they told me was to stop taking them when they told me I was pregnant. I hope what I said helps. Good Luck!
