Birth Control And Tanning?
I am suppose to start Ovcon 35 this month and I was wondering if tanning is ok to do while on this pill? I have heard of people burning and getting rashes really bad while tanning while on birth control pills- is this true? I usually tan at least 3 times a month to keep my color up- should i stop, or can i continue?

Well yes you can get some skin problems from tanning while on the pill. But I used to tan in tanning beds constantly till I wised up and quit ruining my skin. But the only problem I ever noticed which I know was from the pill was around my chest area I would get little white spots which were loss of pigment.
