I just picked up some condoms and my NuvaRing from the pharmacy, then stopped by Kmart, leaving both in the car since I expected the trip to be short. There were some problems with the check out machine in Kmart so it took a lot longer to get back to my car than expected and I'm worried about overheating. It was only about 20-30 minutes and it wasn't THAT hot outside (under 80 F), but the inside of the car was still pretty hot. Do you think the condoms & NuvaRing are still effective?

Great, thank you. Just wanted to make sure.

By the way, do you know the highest temperature it's ok for most condoms to be exposed to? It says on the NuvaRing, but on the condoms box it just says "keep in cool, dry place."
