It depends how you write the reaction. For example, pure water + auto-ionized state, with some base added to remove some protons, will it auto-ionize a bit more (create more H+ and OH-) or a bit less (remove some H+ and OH-)? If we call the base $\ce{B}$ and the conjugate acid $\ce{BH+}$, you could write: $$\ce{B + H3O+ <=> BH+ + H2O}$$ This ...
