No effect: Monistat does not affect birth control. You do not have to delay having intercourse. Some women with yeast infections are quite uncomfortable and prefer to wait until the vaginal infection has resolved before resuming sexual activity.

How long does Amethia birth control stay in your system?

Amethia: amethia birth control is meant to be taken every day. If taken correctly, each pill lasts for 24 hours as effective contraception. Although, even if taken perfect each day, it is not 100% effective. Talk with your GYN or prescribing doctor for specific questions about your medications. Hope that answers your question.
