Birth control pills safety of after conception

■ 1st trimester

It rarely happens, but birth control pills can fail. If you get pregnant while you're taking birth control pills, stop taking them immediately. The hormones in the pills should be avoided during pregnancy. The risk is low, but there is a potential for harm.

If you're planning to become pregnant, most health care providers recommend that you stop taking the pill two to three months before conception. For birth control during this time, you may want to use condoms or a diaphragm. Conceiving during the first month after you stop taking the pill doesn't pose a serious risk to fetal development, however.
