Will it harm your baby if you just found out you're 3 weeks pregnant and are currently on Ritalin and were taking birth control pills because you didn't know you were pregnant?
Not too sure about the Ritalin but I do know that there has been no evidence that taking birth control in early pregnancy without knowing that you are pregnant causes any complications although it is not reccommended to take the birth control if pregnancy is suspected hope this helps sorry I couldn't answer your ? completely Good Luck and God Bless!! See Related LinksSee the Related Link for "All about Ritalin" to the right for the answer though basically it says that no-one knows if it will harm the baby.

With Celexa it just says to talk to your doctor. For the pill, I know that you aren't supposed to take it if you are pregnant, but I'm not exactly sure what the affects it wil…l have on the baby are. Just call your doctor and talk to them. They will give you a pregnancy test and, if needed, put you on a different medication.
Answer . Myth: I've heard that the pill causes birth defects.\nThe Truth: The pill does not cause birth defects or affect the health of future children even if a woman …becomes pregnant while taking the pill.\n. \nCourtesy of the Planned Parenthood Federation website\n. \nhttp://www.plannedparenthood.org/pp2/portal/files/portal/medicalinfo/birthcontrol/pub-contraception-pill-myths.xml#1097790067737::5871515597681799357
Not likely at this stage. Just don't take it again. Anything you take will pass to the fetus, Ritalin's effects are still not 100% known. See Related Links See the Related …Link for "All about Ritalin" to the right for the answer although basically it says that it is not yet known what happens if Ritalin is taken during pregnancy.
The birth control period, as you've notice, can make your period so light that you don't notice one at all. This situation is not a medical concern, but some women find a mont…hly period of bleeding reassuring. If you find it anxiety-provoking to have no withdrawal bleeding on the pill, talk with your health care provider about changing to a different pill that's more likely to lead to bleeding.
is the world going to end ????. maybe you see scientists have discovered that there is a very large piece of the sun about to come crashing down to hit earth although it hasn…'t fallen yet they seem to find a crack in the sun that splits right through the half of the sun but they also think that it will come crashing down to earth in 2012 but be prepared you'll never know when it will
I'm not an expert doctor but being a girl, it's not having your period. Not having the normal healthy period you are suppose get after a certain amount of days, or at the end …of the birth control pills are used up. That's really the only really sign using it, meaning something had went wrong. take a preganncy test from a drug store like publix walmart windixie any where=] first you stop having periods then you get bigger in the lower abdomen lastly, you feel the little bugger kick (at about 5 months) You will miss a period and/or have other pregnancy symptoms. Either wait for your monthly cicle or go to your nearest pharmacy and buy a pregnancy test! if you can't afford a test go to your GP for a free and confidential test. Good Luck I was on birth control pills when I got pregnant....I didnt actually know I was pregnant until I was 16 weeks along....I now loking back on it I got nausea all the time..headaches..backaches..mood swings..i would get sick all the time...pretty much the usual signs of pregnancy...If I were you Id deffinetly take a pregnany test to find out if you really are or not....I hope this helped you a little. I have been asking my self the same thaing but i thaink that the only way to know is to go to a doctor and get cheack out Xoxo Lilley 001 If you are takng the pill regularly , then the chances of you getting pregnant are minimum. But the sign of pregnancy will be morning nausea. You still get the same symptoms You would experience symptoms, maybe notice breast changes such as veins or nipple tenderness and you would not bleed or if you did bleed, it would be very light. today's pregnancy tests are pretty advanced. Take a couple of them and go to see a doctor if they come back positive. Did you miss any days of birth control? I stopped mine for a week and a half and got pregnant right away, it happens that fast although some sources say it can take up to 6 months. Keep taking tests, mine didnt show up until October and I got pregnant September 3rd. Good luck :-) You wouldn't get your period (bright red and follows the light, heavy, light pattern) BUT in early pregnancy a women can have light pink/brown implantation bleeding around the time there period is due. So if your period was light, and you still have signs. I would think there is a strong chance that you are. You can take a test on the first day of your missed period so i guess as seen as you've already had your period you can take it now. but do u think iam? The contraceptive pill known as birth control is only 98% protective against pregnancy so there is still a 2% risk of pregnancy occurring. If pregnancy did occur then you would experience pregnancy symptoms. Because birth control tricks your body into thinking its pregnant, it can be difficult to notice pregnancy symptoms but you will experience pregnancy symptoms. Usually you will not have a period while on birth control when pregnant. But you may experience implantation bleeding which will be light vaginal bleeding unlike your period. However its always advisable to stop taking birth control when you suspect your pregnant. But just incase you are not pregnant & stop taking birth control this will not only put you at risk of pregnancy but also mess up your cycle. So I would advise you to see your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test. The blood test is called Quantitative beta HCG pregnancy blood test & you will need to ask your Doctor specifically for this test so write down the name of it if you do decide to have this blood test. You'll get the results within 3 days & it works by measuring the exact amount of HCG in your blood. signs the first sign of pregnancy is amenorrhoea. then quickening may be there.that is when mother feels like to have a life in her womb vomiting is itself not a doagnosis for pregnancy but its very common in pregnancy.it may not be there. uterus size strarts increasing,increase in hunger these r accessory signs u can add to ur diagnosis. if u had sex in the unsafe period without protection then its most likely to get pregnant if amenorrhoea is there. One method would be to take a pregnancy test, however you should wait at least 7-10 days from your suspected date of conception before a home pregnancy test is likely to be positive. you should get your normal period whil eon the birth control pill at the end of every package there should be a week of sugar pills that is the week you should be getting your period.. if you are on a brand of birth control pills with the number 24 instead of the number 28 than you probably dont have the sugar pills in which case you should be waiting a week before you start your next package of pills if you are waiting a week between packages or if you are taking your sugar pills and you are not getting your period it could mean that you are pregnant or that your pill is too strong if you are getting your period early it could mean your pill is not strong enough and you should see your doctor Easiest Way... A take home pregnancy test. After your missed period, you wont show signs of pregnancy (ex: morning sickness, hormonal flux) until about 3 weeks after your missed period.
Birth control pills will not harm or end a pregnancy, but a woman stops taking them if she's pregnant as they are of no further use.
Well if you have taken a home-pregnancy test and it is positive then yes, you should stop. But you should not take the pregnancy test until at least the day of your expected p…eriod or 14 days after intercourse other wise your results will not likely be accurate. If you do get a positive pregnancy test then go ahead and stop taking your birth control and make an appointment with an OB/GYN. If the test is negative, continue taking your birth control pills until you do get a positive pregnancy test. If you stop taking it before you get the test results and it is negative, your chances of pregnancy are heightened greatly. But if you continue taking it until you get a positive test result, you will not have had enough to cause any harm to the baby.
You can't take anything that is not tested on pregnant women when you are regnant and these products seldom are. And unless you are obese there is no reason to diet when pregn…ant and if needed it has to be done under your doctors supervision.
No! Spotting is not uncommon when pregnant but if there s a lot you should seek help. If you want to take any type of medication you have to check with your doctor first.
Can you start birth control pills in the middle of the pack had a baby cannot get into the doctors have the birth control from before i got pregnant it is 4 pills into week 2 can i take these?
In general the answer is yes... it would be ideal if the pack of pills is one of the "mono-phasic" types meaning all of the active pills are the same dosage. all of the active… pills will have the same shape and color in a monophasic pack. Just try to get a new prescription in time to take a full 21 days of pills without missing any for the best results. also make sure the pills have not expired or may not be as effective.
If you are taking birth control pills and become pregnant continue to take the pills can it harm the baby?
If you ARE pregnant- you have no need to take birth control, you cannot get 'more pregnant' by not taking them or anything like that. Stop taking the birth control pills and s…tart taking prenatal vitamins. Studies are linking birth control pills to being harmful to your baby- but even if they are not harmful- why continue to take them if you are already pregnant? Again, you cannot get pregnant with multiple babies at once like one now, one in a month or anything like that. Once you are pregnant, you are pregnant and birth control will not do anything positive for your little one and is pointless to continue using.
What will happen if you took 2 ecstasy pills and you just found out you are 6 weeks pregnant will this harm your baby in any way if you quit taking ecstasy pills until after the birth?

Take a pregnancy test. . The only real way to know is to take a pregnancy test. If you take the pill as directed you can assume you are not pregnant, the side effects (breas…t tenderness, nausea, moodiness, headaches) should subside over the next couple months.
its not guaranteed to get pregnant BUT the risk is definitely increased
Yes, When the baby is born it may have brain damage or problems with limbs working correctly,If you are lucky it may not happen to you but there is a 99.5% chance that it will… effect the baby. -Arielle
There has been no evidence that shows that taking the pill in early pregnancy causes any birth defects to the developing fetus. They will not harm or end an existing pregnancy…, but they are of no use to the pregnant woman. If you're pregnant and don't want to be, contact your health care provider as soon as possible to talk about options; taking the birth control in the mistaken impression that it can end your pregnancy will only delay definite treatment. On the other hand, if you're pregnant and would like to continue the pregnancy, stop taking the birth control pill and contact your health care provider to set up prenatal care. Answer No, not neccassarily but could cause birth defects if you continue taking the pill. Would highly recommend you to STOP taking it because your baby is at risk of problems.
