Answer to your Health Question

Question: I just put in my birth control last night (NuvaRing). I have had a yeast infection for two weeks. I just got Monistat 1 day treatment. Can I use it without it affecting my birth control? Michelle

Answer: Dear Michelle,

When taking vaginal medication (such as Monistat), the levels of hormones released by NuvaRing can increase although it should not alter the pregnancy protection.

As a precaution, use an alternative form of contraception (condoms) while both are being used.
