No melationin is just a sleeping aid. It will in no way affect your Birth Control pills.


Melatonin is naturally produced in the pineal gland near the base of the brain, is in your blood from a few months after birth until death, and in no way affects birth control. For more information about melatonin see the related questions below.

"It has also been shown to boost the immune system, lower cholesterol, shrink the prostate, and lower heart rate and blood pressure. Researchers are looking into it as a possible treatment or cure for such things as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, AIDS, PMS, menopause, osteoporosis, Down's syndrome, and even as a birth control pill. Some suggest it may even delay the aging process, though it may not be able to reverse it (it has been shown to increase the longevity of lab rats an average of 20 percent), and it may ease some symptoms of autism, epilepsy and Diabetes."
