Welcome to ehealthforum.
Tamiflu should not cause any reduction in the effectiveness of your birth control pill. You may feel sick after taking Tamiflu, and if you do have vomiting after taking your pill (it will act as a missed pill) follow the missed pill protocol as given the instruction leaflet. Visit your gynecologist to discuss in detail.
Take care.
