Really worried
Hi There

I went off the pill on 3 Dec. I think I might be pregnant!!
Problem is that I only expected to get pregnant in at least 3 month after I went of the pill AND over this festive season I partied (drink/smoke) alot.

If I'm pregnant? is there anyway that I could've hurt my baby?
When do a baby actually start "living" from his mother?

Implantation takes place around Day 10 after ovulation. Before this, any substances you take should not get through to the fetus. You don't say when your last period was, but you should be okay up to Day 24 of your cycle.
