Birth cintrol and otc cold medicine?

I took my birth control and equate cold medication a minute apart and I was just wondering if that makes it any less effective, I was on my 5th day in the pack when I did this.

    ....However....I can tell you that it won't!

    There are no cough/cold meds that will interfere with the absorption of birth control pills or any other kind of steroid.

    Next time, don't take them at the same time, and take the birth control pill on an empty stomach to make sure it is absorbed the best.

    Read the drug facts on the back of the box/bottle. Since you didn't specify what was in the medicine, There isn't a way I can find out if they will or not.
