I know that heat can mess with medicine...but it never occurred to me it'd make your BCP's ineffective, which could very well bring about a pregnancy when you're not ready for it.

If you're curious about the pill causing health problems, taking the pill while you're pregnant, or anything else, Mayo covers it HERE.

  • Wild Parsnip
  • Heat Rash (miliaria)

  • UVA and UVB Ray Protection
