I know this might sound weird but I had my navel pierced about four months ago. I'm not sure if its infected right now. I'm on the pill, is there any way an infection (if I have one) can interfere with the effectiveness of the pill?

An infection in your bellybutton will not affect the pill. However, if it were to get bad enough to require antibiotics, THOSE may affect it, if it comes to that. Otherwise, you don't need to worry.
