pill expiry date
Hi Doc
I went to a local clinic where I usually get my pills to get my Nordette pills, and they gave 3 packets of pills and they all expire june 2010. they showed me the date and told me I shouldnt be worried about the expiry date even if its june 2010 cause they work effectively for 3 months after expiry date. should I believe this bull s***t? or should I do something about it?

Expiry dates are there for a reason. I would not take a chance.
