Pregnant while on the pill

Hi Doc

What are the dangers of falling pregnant while on the pill? If a person gets pregnant say as a result of missing a pill etc., and you continue drinking the pill without knowing that you are pregnant, will this cause any harm for the baby? Will being on the pill interfere with a home pregnancy test?

Falling pregnant on the Pill will not harm the fetus and it will not interefere with the pregnancy test.

Being on the pill will not interfere with a home pregnancy test. I've heard that it increases the chances of the baby having a heart problem by about 1%. Not heard of anything other problems and there are alot of women that have fallen preggies on the pill and their babies are born healthy so don't worry.
