Whst happens if a take diet pills without me knowing im pregnant for the first month?

Depends on the type: There are many different diet pills so it's impossible to answer this without knowing the specific type of diet pill. In general it's wise to avoid all medicines and even most herbs if possible in the first month of pregnancy, when the embryo is most susceptible to being harmed. If one is taking any pills that could be harmful in early pregnancy they should practice birth control to minimize risk. ...Read more
