Does alcohol mess with the pill?
Drinking alcohol doesn’t change that. Alcohol won’t affect IUDs, implants, the ring, or the patch either. Usually, it won’t change the effectiveness of the pill. The only time you would need to worry is if you drank so much alcohol that you vomited within two hours of taking your pill.
