Hi doctor,

I got my last period on the 1st of last month. Two days back, I used birth control pills. But, I am 2 weeks pregnant now. Will it cause any side effect?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It depends on the number of pills you took and the duration of intake. If it was single or two pills, then chance of the pill affecting baby is low. Please remember that the chance can never be 0 or 100%.

If exposure was continuous, which is less likely from the history you mentioned, then the pill can affect the baby. You may need to consider for termination of pregnancyin consultation with an obstetrician after considering other factors. Regarding side effects on the mother, there will not be any side effect.

Thank you doctor,

Is there any chance to get aborted naturally? I took the pill 25 hours ago and now I am getting breast pain. Why?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

The chance of getting aborted naturally is very low. You need to consult a gynecologist for specific medicines for abortion if you desire so. Breast pain can be due to the pill or due to hormonal effect of pregnancy.
