    I took my birth control at 8 pm and had dinner about half an hour later and chugged down a glass of Coke.

    Would this affect my birth control by any chance?

    There are things that can - St John's Wort is the classic, along with several medicines - but, no, fizzy drinks don't.

    No. Only alcoholic drinks can have an adverse affect on birth control..
