I'm still concerned about leaving my pills in the heat. I called a bajillion pharmacists, and seriously got a different answer from each. Even the manufacturer didn't know what to say. One said because it's only been in the 70s here, I should be okay. I left my pills in my car the month before and I still got my period on time.

Anyone had personal experience with this as well? I take my pill perfectly, and this is the only issue I have.

September told me they're still effective, but not as much. Others have said that they are not effective at all. So, you can see why I am panicking. I didn't even KNOW this would be an issue since it says nothing about it in the literature. I just need some support, I guess.

Most medications warn that you shouldn't get them too warm. It's impossible to say exactly what, if any, effect the heat had.

We always encourage people to err on the side of caution and keep their pills in a climate controlled (or at least shaded) space.
