If you take the morning after pill and contiue to take the birth control pill is the birth control still effective for the rest of the month?

If you had missed a pill or been late with a pill, causing you to take the morning after pill, then you should use a back up method of birth control for the next seven days. If you didn't forget a pill or take a pill late, then I'm not sure why you took the morning after pill, but the birth control pill will still be effective even though you took the morning after pill. The morning after pill doesn't make the birth control pill less effective.

You started taking the pill before your period was regular Will this prevent you from having children?

You should take "the pill" for at least one full cycle for you, or to be on the safe side 30 days, before having unprotected sex. This will allow the pill to have enough time to be effective. If you are asking if the pill will cause to not have children, when you are ready to have children at a late time, then no. It will not prevent you from being able to have children.
