I'm taking sertraline and escitalopram with birth control pills. Is it possible that the antidepressants affect the pills' contraceptive action?

In brief: I am not addressing

BUT, why are you taking both sertraline and escitalopram ? That doesn't make sense - until less you are titrating off one med onto the other.
