GP asked me to continue again and might take some time for it to kick in. after 15 days i was fade up. so i stopped and bled heavily. i waited 10 days and the period stopped. so i discontinued the BC. and i took some slimming pills instead and manage to lose some weight. my period stopped on the 4th april till now. i done HPT and it was positive. i am worried about the slimming pill whether will harm the baby ?? i only took it for about a month since period stopped. please advice thanks likee
