I have gotten pregnant on Birth Control pills twice, they are 8 and 6 years old now. During the pregnancy with my 8 year old, I didn't know I was pregnant until the first week in my second trimester. I had donated blood, went to the tanning salon (I don't do that anymore ;), I'm sure I had alcohol here and there, although I'm not a big drinker, but a glass of wine here and there...he's fine. Birth control pills contain nothing leathal, they contain hormones that your body make anyways. They actually mock a pregnancy, and since your body thinks it is pregnant, it does not ovulate (usually), but nothing is 100%...and I have an 8 and 6 year old to prove that case.
Is the question would the birth control pills cause you to miscarry? I don't think so, they're just hormones. They do recommend that if you do find out you're pregnant while on them to stop taking them. I too, was one of the women who got pregnant while taking birth control pills. DS will turn 3 in two and a half weeks now.
