I'm don't know about that, but I think trying that may run you at risk of not aborting the pregnancy but causing birth defects.  You may want to see a physician.

LosingmymindinGA~ BCP's don't cause birth defects as far as I'm aware.. even in high doses. Some women have been on Depo (high hormone dose) throughout their pregnancy and had healthy babies. (they didn't know they were pregnant til around 6 or more months....

But yes, Go see a Dr. and ask about it!

I cannot recommend that or give any insight on that. I do hope that if you don't want a baby that you're able to refrain from sex until you are. It's just sad to me to see so many posts tonight about women doing things to their unborn babies.
