No: As a matter of fact, if there is endometriosis or a risk of a sexually transmissible infection, the pill can actually improve the likelihood of fertility.

Very safe: Assuming that one is in good health, doesn't smoke over the age of 35, has no risk of leg/lung clots, the pill is quite safe - even safer than pregnancy.
