I was told by a friend of mine that taking pills would stop the pregnancy since this is my first period missed?

  • if you are pregnant you are pregnant. pills can harm but may and probably wont kill the baby in the womb.

  • Are you referring to the morning after pill or the birth control pill or what? If you already pregnant, then it will not terminate your pregnancy. If it is within three days of having unprotected sex, then the pill will prevent the pregnancy from happening. I don't know how old you or your friends are, but you really need to be careful. A baby will change your life. I became pregnant with my son at 19 and it was very difficult.

  • you should ask a doctor. friends always mean well, but they dont always know what they are talking about. i wouldnt take anything until youve taken a pregnancy test to know for sure.

  • I seriously hope you aren't a teenager. But nonetheless you shouldn't be having sex. The morning after pill only works up to 72 hours and won't terminate an existing pregnancy.

  • Your friends are misguiding you- everything the previous posters have said is the truth.

    I became pregnant with my dd (who is now 9) when I was 15- you should be thinking about a trip to the clinic, if you do not want to have a baby. Taking BC pills, or the morning after pill will only make you sick if you are already pregnant.
