What is NuvaRing?
NuvaRing is a flexible contraceptive ring that is used to prevent pregnancy. Roughly two inches in diameter, you insert the ring into your vagina only once a month. The muscles in your vaginal wall help keep NuvaRing set in place for three weeks. During this time, it slowly releases a low dose of hormones that will prevent pregnancy.
When your 21 days are completed, simply remove NuvaRing to allow your body to have it’s natural menstrual cycle. After seven days, a new ring should be inserted for continued prevention of pregnancy.
How does NuvaRing work?
The ring contains two hormones, estrogen and progestin which stop your ovaries from producing mature eggs. The hormone release is activated by the contact of NuvaRing with your vagina. Your vaginal wall absorbs the hormones and distributes them into your bloodstream. When used as directed NuvaRing is 99% effective.
NuvaRing provides a low and steady hormone delivery. This constant release allows for fewer hormonal ups and downs.
What are some advantages of NuvaRing?
- Convenience. You don’t have to remember daily or weekly to take your birth control because NuvaRing is inserted monthly. Exact position is not important for effectiveness.
- Discretion. You insert and remove the ring privately. Upon insertion most women and their partners won’t notice it’s there.
- Low incidence of side effects and breakthrough bleeding.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects of NuvaRing are found to be similar to those of the pill and contraceptive patch. These symptoms usually resolve in the first 1-3 months of use.
- Breast tenderness
- Irregular bleeding
Rare problems include blood clots, heart attack, and stroke. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Sudden abdominal pain
- Unexplained chest pain or shortness of breath
- Severe headache
- Blurred vision
- Severe leg pain (calf or thigh area)
- Weakness in one side of the body
If side effects persist or worsen while using NuvaRing, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
