I Left My Birth Control Pills In A Hot Car

i left my birth control pills in a hot car, for about three hours are they still effective?


Hi there

What directions are on your pill pack? Does it say anything about what temperature to store your pills? It is unclear whether or not the heat of being in a car for several hours would decrease your pills' effectiveness. I would take a moment and call your pharmacist or your doctor about this one.

I am not seeing anything in the literature which talks about this.

I am sorry I could not be more helpful.
