Malaria prevention vs the Pill

Good day,

Will Mefliam influence the working of the Pill (like Jasmin or Yaz)? As parrt of our honeymoon we will be in the Hazyview/Sabie area and me and my fiance got Mefliam, but I am currently on an oral contraceptive and I just want to do my best to prevent malaria and pregnancy... Please advice if the Pill will still work!

Best regards

The malaria medication will have an influence on the effectiveness of your oral contraceptive and I suggest that you use condoms for a full menstrual cycle.
