I just found this out about my birth control and now I don't feel comfortable taking it

Maybe I just don't know as much as I should about these kinds of things but I recently found out that my birth control is designed to basically make my uterus unsuitable for an embryo to attach itself to my uterine wall. I thought it was just supposed to make my not ovulate, are all birth control pills like this?

I just don't feel comfortable taking my birth control knowing this, I believe life begins at conception so basically what I have been doing, to me, is not much different then a very early abortion.

Did anyone else not know about this?

I am not sure, but have you thought about just using condoms?

Different birth control methods work differently. This is something one should definitely learn about when choosing their method of birth control. Especially if a woman has any sort of moral/religious issues with certain forms of birth control.  

You can always make an appointment and switch birth control, this time be sure to research before you choose.

I am going to my OBGYN next week and I will defiantly discuss this with her. The reason I didn't look too much into it was this was the only kind I could be on while breastfeeding and I thought all pills did the same thing anyway, stop me from ovulating.

I have stopped taking them so for the meantime I guess we will have to but I really don't like them

It sounds like you've got an IUD.  If it's a Mirena, it does have hormones that prevent ovulation (as do some other IUDs).  The copper one only makes it an unhospitiable environment for a fertilized egg to implant, and that's the one you would have a problem with.  Most birth control pills do prevent ovulation, which is how they work.

Talk to you doctor about it.

I don't believe you. I think you made up this post because you are pro choice and wanted to point out the hypocricy in others
