welcome to Healthcaremagic forum.
Alcohol consumption decreases the efficacy of pill by increasing its metabolism.
Avoid alcohol or use other methods of contraception.

with oral pills clearence become more slow and may cause more effect with less ofit causing problem
better to avoid alcohol while on pills or reduce consumption of alcohol
