In brief: None

Birth defects should be expected in approx.
4% of all live births. They are caused by an alteration in a gene, a chromosome, multiple factors or a teratogen - an exposure to a drug, for ex. The pill was considered a causative agent behind some birth defects - one ex. Was the vacterl complex. Consensus today is that there is very little evidence for an association between the pill and defects.
