Terbinafine and birth control pills

I've been taking Terbinafine tablets for a few months for an infection - does this have any effect on the contraceptive pill Gedarel or on its effectiveness at all?

Thank you!

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

The medication you are on is to treat fungal infections. It does not interfere with the effectiveness of hormonal birth control pills.
