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.

(I know this is a volunteer only place but I'm afraid of this post getting buried without this info attached...)

Navel piercings are one of the more dangerous piercings, because of their location, so if you think its at all infected, get it checked out right away!

[Pixeldot, this is a volunteer only area, and that is a strict rule. Next time, if you think we've missed some important info, please use the Contact form at the bottom of the page to let us know (or you can use the "report post" button as well, which will send an e-mail to all the forum moderators) and we'll make the correction.]
