i'm on the pill, but recently it seems to have messed up (i got my last period when i wasn't even halfway finished with my set of pills) now i think i may be pregnant, but should i continue to take my pills? will it harm anything if i am pregnant, or could it make me not pregnant if i am and continue to take it?

Have you continued to take your pills in the right order every day? Why do you think you're pregnant?

If the only reason you think you're pregnant is because of the strange bleeding, that is NOT an indication that you are pregnant. Sometimes that just happens on the pill.

If you have been taking your pills incorrectly, then you may be pregnant, but bleeding is NOT a sign that the pill isn't working.

The pill will not harm the fetus if you are pregnant.
