If by Birth Control you mean the pill (birth control being the name for all methods including condoms etc) it prevents a pregnancy occurring in the first place rather than stopping it once it has started.

Taking birth control during pregnancy?

Not sure what you are asking. but NO, you should not be taking birth control during pregnancy. However, if you are taking oral contraceptive pills or depot provera and discover you are pregnant, you should not worry. Women who were on the birth control pill or depot provera during their pregnancy do not have any problems with their pregnancy i.e. they can carry the pregnancy to term and without any fetal abnormalities from the hormones. BUT if you are on birth control and find out you are pregnant, please STOP the birth control, unless you intend to get an abortion. In which case you should resume the birth control the day of the abortion. and if you are using condoms, you should continue to use that through pregnancy for STD prevention purposes not for birth control.
