8 Things That Can Seriously Mess With Your Birth Control Pills

Birth control pills can sometimes be a bit of a hushed topic. On the one hand, they are super important if you want to have sex but not have a baby. On the other hand, you might feel too embarrassed to talk about them with your parents or friends, which means you might have a lot of questions left unanswered. It’s okay, we’ve all been there, but it really is important to know everything about birth control when you’re on it – especially the bad stuff. You might not know this, but some things that you do every day can make your birth control less effective, which can put you at risk of unplanned pregnancy. I know it’s scary, but it’s okay! You’ve come to the right place.

When you’re having sex, you want to be able to have a good time doing it without the stress of dealing with an unplanned pregnancy, which is obviously where the Pill comes in. But while doctors and the media can sometimes make the Pill seem like the perfect solution, they definitely aren’t 100 percent foolproof. When not taken perfectly, there’s still a chance of pregnancy – and I’m not just referring to taking them every day at the same time (although that’s essential too). There are other outside forces that can mess with your pills that you should be aware of. In order to ensure you’re totally protecting yourself,, learn about these common things that can make the Pill less effective so that you can be prepared.
