Brief Answer:
Terminate pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Though there are no scientific studies on what harm exactly iPILL can cause to baby i will advise you not to continue the pregnancy if you took the pill after getting pregnant.

This is because these medication are high on artificial hormones which are basically steroids.

So it can cause subtle or significant deformities.

My advise will be to terminate pregnancy

Feel free to consult me directly

Dear,

Detailed Answer:
Dear,

If you want to keep this pregnancy you can do so at your own risk.

YES you can get a detailed scan at 5 th month.

Start tablet folic acid now once every day for 3 months.

Get a dating regular scan sometime after 2 months.

Other than that do not indulge in sex, heavy work or long distance travel.

You will do fine.

Regards,
Dr. Som MD

Brief Answer:
No its not 100%

Detailed Answer:
No its not 100%

The risk is low. (exact percentage is not there as studies on this are not published)

You cannot do anything about it other than an abortion. (which you do not want).
