What if I become pregnant while taking birth control pills?

The most common reason women become pregnant on the Pill is improper usage.  Pregnancies usually occur because initiation of the next cycle (the next pack of pills) is delayed or forgotten allowing for ovulation to take place.  If you do become pregnant while taking the pill, immediately stop taking them.  There have not been any reports that demonstrate the hormones in the pill adversely affect a developing fetus.
