What Your Doctor Won't Tell You About the Pill

In a slight deviation from my normal topics, I'm writing about something that I consider very serious.

First, none of this will carry any weight with you unless your definition of a living child is not the exact moment an egg is fertilized in the fallopian tubes. I have several verses and pure science to back that up but that's another post. If you do not believe this to be true, you will get absolutely nothing out of this post. Go about your day.

Second, yes, I'm aware that the birth control pill has several other horrendous side effects and that there are tons of other types of birth control, but today I'm focusing just on the pill.


Like salvation, before I could believe, I had to have a clear understanding of the facts. I was a bc pill user for quite some time before finding out the facts that not one single doctor had given me. As with everything in life, I'm the only one to blame for accepting something without finding out the facts first. And the second I discover facts that do not coalesce with my beliefs, it is my own fault if I don't implement change.

So here's the deal... There are four types of pills:

      Alesse, Beyaz, Brevicon, Demulen, Desogen, Levlen, Loestrin, Norinyl, Ortho-Cept, Ortho-Cyclen, Ortho-Novum, Yasmin, Yaz
      Jenest-28, Mircette, Necon 10/11, Ortho-Novum 10/11
      Ortho-Novum 7/7/8, Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Tri-Levlen, Tri-Norinyl, Triphasil
   Micronor, Nor-QD (norethindrone), Ovrette
Extended Cycle/Continued Use
   Seasonale, Seasonique, Lybrel
Emergency Contraceptives (not the "day after" pill)
   Plan B, Plan B One-Step, Ella

EACH AND EVERY ONE of these pills uses three methods to prevent "conception":

1) Preventing release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation)
2) Increases cervical mucus, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus
3) "Alters" the lining of the uterus, making it less "receptive" to an embryo.

My issue is with #3.

And no, you don't need to take my word for it. These are from the websites of a pill from each category (mircette did not have information on their website, theirs was taken from




Ortho Tri-Cyclen




 You may see some vague and/or scientific words to confuse the subject, but make no mistake - a fertilized egg is being prevented from attaching itself to your uterus. What all of these are saying is that if the first two don't work, you assuredly won't get pregnant because your uterine wall (endometrium) will be thinned and unreceptive to a fertilized egg. A fertilized egg requires a thick lining to attach to and that lining also becomes a part of the placenta and provides nutrition to it. 

Those that would argue against this would say that if "breakthrough" ovulation were to occur, that your reproductive system would kick into action and thicken up the uterus lining. However, there is no concrete evidence to support this and as far as I'm concerned, the risk is simply not worth the "reward".

That's my two cents. Now go have some common sense, do your own research and make up your own mind.


  1. Excellent post. I've been trying to tactfully explain these facts to some friends and acquaintances, but this is a great breakdown of the truth. Also, although this post is only about the pill, the IUD is even worse. Whether copper or plastic with hormone, the IUD not only does all of the above, but if an embryo does implant, it's likely to be shed through the abrasive action of the IUD itself. One study estimated that a woman using an IUD shed an average of one embryo PER YEAR she used the device. This is just a study's estimate. If it fails to suppress ovulation, who knows how many pregnancies are lost? The saddest part of all is that Christian women who would likely have a serious problem with these facts are not made aware of them, and continue to use these products. Thanks for posting.

  2. Wonderful post. I am thankful that I learned this early in life. Thank you for sharing this information for others so that they can be more informed with the decisions they are making.

  3. Thanks for posting : ) So glad that other people are of a like mind! Would love nothing more than for everyone to be fully informed before making these life-altering decisions.

  4. Thank you for posting this with evidence to back it up! My husband has pressured me to use the pill and I haven't because I knew something was wrong with it (besides the bad side effects). Now I can show him this so he'll know for sure that it's not the right thing for us. I asked my doctor if taking the pill meant you could still get pregnant, but then abort and she said no. My sister-in-law, who is a born-again believer and pro-life, is an intern in medical school and she has told me the same thing about the pill and also that stem cell research is perfectly acceptable in a moral viewpoint. I don't think medical students are told the truth about these things and are being taught with a pro-abortion perspective.

  5. I think it's sad that it takes a lot of research just to get to the truth, but I agree that medical students are being taught falsehoods (perhaps by teachers that were taught lies as well) and no one ever thinks to go and find out for themselves.

  6. Great post; thanks for sharing, Susan! I'm glad someone took the time to share these things with me before I was married as we were thinking we'd start using bc (just like everyone else... because isn't that what you're "supposed" to do?). I shared the info with my soon-to-be-husband, he agreed with what we researched, and the decision was made. Now that I know more about all of the issues from the added hormones, I'm so glad we never even started any of that!

  7. #3 is the exact reason I don't take BC pills. I took them when I was a teen for acne, but when I got married, I stopped them. I suffered with infertility for 2 years and can't imagine having a fertilized egg not implant. That makes me so sad :(
