I went camping and left my birth control pills in

Patient: I went camping and left my birth control pills in the car but it was around 30 degrees both nights. Will the pill still work?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Usually birth control pills are advised to store at room te mperature.But usually they can work even at 30°c also.Regular intake of pills are recommended to achieve complete contraceptive protection.Take care.
