Nothing is as annoying yet inspiring as your favourite celebrity promoting a detox tea in their skimpy gym clothes, and all you can do is buy the tea and hope to wake up looking just like them. However, you need to read this before you buy that 'magic' tea.

According to Dr Virginia Beckett, these trendy detox teas reduce the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill.  “Detox teas which contain senna leaf may have a laxative effect which can cause diarrhea or vomiting," said the Royal College of Obstetricians spokesperson.

“If a woman vomits within two hours of taking the contraceptive pill, it may not have been fully absorbed into her bloodstream so she should take another pill straight away," they added.

Doctors advise that women drinking these detox teas should take extra precaution and use other extra contraception methods as severe vomiting and diarrhea may also reduce the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill.

Bootea, a ‘teatox’ beverage, state on their website: “Our teas may affect the accuracy of the pill.

“We cannot comment on other forms of contraception and would ask you to consult your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before taking the tea.”
