Does a prescription pain medication like hydrocodone affect birth control?
I've been taking up to 3 pills everyday for the past week [ I had oral surgery-pain ayeee!!] and I jsut realized I could be ruining affectivenesss. Not good. I've been googling and searching all over the net, but nothing tells me it does affect, but it also doesnt tell me if it does not. If anyone knows, let me know! Thank you!

No pain medicine does not effect your birth control, if you were on an antibiotic yes that does. :)
