and if you are 14
Warfarin is NOT birth control! You CAN get pregnant while on warfarin by having sexual intercourse but if you do, it is EXTREMELY dangerous to the unborn fetus because it can cause bleeding in the fetus and would be life threatening. It would also be life threatening to the mother to give birth or to have an abortion while on warfarin due to bleeding. If you are taking warfarin and are of childbearing potential, you should be on birth control regularly or you should abstain from sex. If you are 14 years old, on warfarin and sexually active, you need to have a frank discussion with your prescribing Dr about your being sexually active. You should NEVER become pregnant while on warfarin! It is too dangerous for both mother and child.
