2 doctors weighed in:

I took my Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) bcp at 5pm and then I had to take 4x150 mg activated charcoal pills at 11pm. Did the charcoal interfere with my bcp?

In brief: Probably not

There was 6 hours for your oral contraceptive to be absorbed between doses of the activated charcoal and "the pill".
