Is the contraceptive pill affected by Omeprazole-Heartburn meds?

I've suffered from acid reflux problems for quite some time. i was given different dosages of Omeprazole and was never told about any side affects. i went to the docotors today and she gave me a different dose to last time and she told me that i should be careful as it would make the contraceptive pill stop working. i read the inclosed leaflet that came with the Omeprazole from top to bottom and it didnt mention it anywhere, i looked on the internet and it seems that some people say it will affect the pill and others say it wont. i'd really like to find out for sure, just incase really. i'd really appreciate if somebody could help me out, thanks alot.
