Can you please let me know what the dangers are to a child if they swallow a contraceptive pill. I have lost one from the packet and have done a massive search and clean of the house but would like to know what the effects would be on a child just in case she does find it and if I should be very worried.
It is very unlikely to have any serious effect. Maybe a headache or nausea. If it is a girl, she may even experience some slight spotting or vaginal bleeding when the pill leaves her system (same effect that cause your periods).
