    Hello madam.Good morning. These are birth control pills. Ideally we advice that you stop taking these pills once you notice you are pregnant...It's unlikely since you noticed and stopped them immediately. Hopefully those are the inactive pills too You may do an anomaly scan from about 20 weeks to rule out any abnormalities with the baby.Though I doubt there will any . Just relax and stay positive. Also.speak with your gynaecologist on your next ANC visit on the need to do the anomaly cast. All the best madam and wish you a safe delivery. Have a great week ahead.
