I have been taking Yaz for less then a week so I am still getting to know the basics about the pill. I just had a couple glasses of wine and I questioned myself the effectiveness... Now to be honest I am NOT taking Yaz for it's birth control purpose. Doctor prescribed it for Hormonal issues, to be specific HIRUTISM & ACNE. Also Doc said it's OK I can have a couple of drinks with Yaz but I was just wondering if it will continue helping me with my issues, not as a contraceptive per se. I do like my wine I admit. A glass or two most 'normal' days. Sometimes 5/6 glasses at occasions like weddings etc. So my question is will Yaz continue reducing the hairs if I drink? thanks in advance.

Yes, alcohol is not known to alter its efficacy, as reported by the U.S. FDA.

However, it may worsen the other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and PMS-like symptoms.

Thus, if your doctor approves of you imbibing, it would be best to make sure you will not be driving or operating any dangerous machinery.

Is there anything else I can help with?
