Does alcohol affect the contraceptive pill?

No, alcohol will not affect the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill.

However, you do need to remember to take your pill at the same time every day. If you knowingly have vomited within two hours of taking your pill, it may not have been absorbed by your body.

You should refer to the informational pamphlet received with your medication for further advice regarding your prescribed contraceptive pill.

Please drink responsibly.

Contro does not provide medical advice. All the above information has been verified and checked by our Partner Doctors.
