I assume you mean "birth control pills." Women who take birth control pills early on during pregnancy do not bear increased risk to the fetus if taken briefly. So the dose and duration is important. You can contact the California Teratogen Registry to get more information: www.CTISpregnancy.org or 800-532-3749. But do make sure to know what you took, for how long,and how far into the pregnancy you took the pills.
