Do I stop taking birthcontrol?

I am not sure if I am pregnant yet. I have exhibited many early symptoms but it is still a little to early to take a test. Should i stop taking my birthcontrol pills now? Or wait until i know for sure?

  • It depends whether or not you're trying to get pregnant. I've read in several places that the Pill does not harm a baby. It won't do anything if you're already pregnant, but I'd go to a Dr. and ask for sure. If you are, you don't want to risk harming your baby. If you're not and don't want to end up pregnant, you're taking a huge risk. You could always use condoms until you know for sure and then resume your bc.

  • I had the same thing happen this month . My husband and I decided to not use the pills and only use condoms until we knew for sure...because I literally could not test for 3 1/2 weeks. It was a good thing we did because I was pregnant! It never hurts to be safe! Good luck.
