A mix up between birth control pills and placebos could cause women to become unintentionally pregnant. Pfizer has issued a recall of over a million birth control pills after discovering the sequence of placebos and contraceptives were out of order, which could cause the contraceptives to become significantly weakened.
The brand affected by the mix up is Lo/Ovral-38 and the generic forms norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol with expiration dates between July 31, 2013 and March 31, 2014. Women who believe they have a defective package should start using non-hormonal contraceptives immediately.
One woman in Georgia has already filed a lawsuit against Pfizer after she unintentionally became pregnant while taking birth control pills.
