Could Alcohol Be Affecting The Effectiveness Of Your Birth Control? - ZUMI

5 months ago, 12 July 14:25

By: Sheila Bennati

Alcohol can directly affect many medications, but birth control is not one of them. A person can drink alcohol without worrying that it may reduce the effectiveness of their birth control pill.

Drinking too much alcohol, on the other hand, can indirectly lower the effectiveness of birth control. Alcohol affects judgment, which in turn can lead to risky sexual behaviour. Which can also affect a person’s ability to use birth control correctly.

If a person forgets to take the pill or vomits within 2 hours of taking it, they may have an increased likelihood of pregnancy.

When drinking, it is best to take extra precautions to avoid unintended pregnancy. These include drinking alcohol in moderation to avoid vomiting and carrying a backup form of birth control. Remember that condoms are the only method that also protects against STIs.

It may help to set a daily reminder to take the pill or to switch to a more convenient form of contraception, such a vaginal ring or an IUD.
