Emergency Contraception – Will it harm the baby if my spouse took emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) that did not work?

Will it harm the baby if my spouse took emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) that did not work?


 


No. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, studies have been done with women who did not know they were pregnant and kept taking birth control pills. These studies have found no greater risk for birth defects.


 


Your spouse should see her doctor right away to talk about her options.
