Thousands Of Women Could Be Accidentally Pregnant, After Taking 'Faulty' Birth Control Pills! Could YOU Be Affected?

An Alabama-based drug company has recalled 1.4 million packs of contraceptive pills that are sold all across the U.S., after discovering a mistake that could encourage users to take the drug at the wrong time! Is there going to be an accidental baby epidemic?

Bosses at Qualitest Pharmaceuticals insist the faulty packets aren’t a health risk to patients — but many were found to be printed with an incorrect regimen. That means they’re not protecting against pregnancy!

A spokesperson for Qualitest explains the problem: “Select blisters (found inside the pill box) were rotated 180 degrees within the card, reversing the weekly tablet orientation. As a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception, and at risk for unwanted pregnancy.”

“The unintended consequence of pregnancy is really the issue. That’s why the company took a drastic action.”

The affected contraceptive drugs are Cyclafem 7/7/7, Cyclafem 1/35, Emoquette, Gildess FE 1.5/30, Gildess FE 1/20, Orsythia, Previfem and Tri-Previfem, reports CNN.com.

Drug stores are trying to contact those who may have purchased faulty packs of the drugs.

This is a terrifying story. Thousands of people sensibly use birth control because they aren’t in a position to be parents.

Could you be affected, HollyMoms?
