Birth control pill error could lead to unintented pregnancy

Posted under Lake Geneva defective pharmaceutical product attorneys

A mix up with hormonal birth control pills and placebos could cause women to become unintentionally pregnant. Pfizer has issued a recall of nearly a million birth control pills under the Lo/Ovral-28 brand and its generics, norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol.

The mix up could cause the contraception to become significantly weakened, posing a pregnancy risk in users. A 32 year-old woman from Georgia has recently filed a lawsuit against Pfizer after she became pregnant while taking birth control pills.

The error is not believed to cause any health risks to the babies should a pregnancy occur. Women who believe they have a defective package should begin using non-hormonal contraceptives immediately.
