Detox teas like Skinny Tea, are packed full of all natural, non-toxic ingredients, and use a blend of powerful, specially prepared teas, to give your body a thorough detox whilst aiding with weight loss. Other detox teas contain various additional ingredients alongside the tea, which aim to produce a laxative effect. It is this laxative effect which can result in medications, such as the contraceptive pill, to fail.
We promise that all our detox teas will not affect the efficacy of the birth control pill.
Some other brands additionally add various Asian herbs and additives, which generally are of dubious value and potentially can cause a great number of side effects - including causing the contraceptive pill not to work
There was a lot of media coverage around this some months back, with drinkers of some brands of tea falling pregnant even although they had taken their pill correctly. If you are on the pill you should opt for a tea that is just that, pure tea. You will still reap the benefits of a thorough detox but without the risk of reducing the effectiveness of your medication.
It is also worth noting that laxative teas produce short-term results compared to non-laxative teas, which are more effective in the long-term. Opt for a non-laxative tea and always check the small print so you aren’t caught out.
