INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Birth control pills are known to be nearly 100 percent effective when taken properly, but a recall of the drugs could send a shudder through women of childbearing age.
A manufacturing mix-up by Pfizer Inc., the world's largest drug maker, led to some packets being distributed with the pills out of order. That means a patient could have unknowingly skipped a dose and raised her risk of an accidental pregnancy.
Pfizer has recalled about 1 million packets of Lo/Ovral-28 and its generic equivalent, but the company estimates that only about 30 packets were flawed. The pills were made and shipped last year.
Each packet contains 28 days' worth of the prescription, with 21 pills containing the active ingredient that prevents pregnancy and seven placebo pills. The pills are normally color-coded to note the difference.

Fanfuckingtastic. I mean of all the drugs to fuck up the order of. If I had a kid because of these fuckups at Pfizer I would be all over their shit. They'd be paying me for diapers and formula and shit. Or at least the abortion.
I'll be straight up I like the Nuvaring choice of birth control. No forgetting pills and having pregnancy scares every other week. And no you can't feel it with your cock while you're giving your girl the old in-out. It just chills up in there and protects your fucking ass. No different colors and placebos and shit. Easy squeazy.
