Nuvaring Vaginal Ring Information:

NuvaRing (Generic name: Etonogestrel/ Ethinyl Estradiol) is the first monthly vaginal ring approved for birth control. Nuva Ring is a soft, flexible and transparent ring about 2 inches in diameter that provides month-long contraceptive protection. It releases a combination of female hormone, progestin and estrogen, and is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy if used correctly. These hormones enter into the woman's bloodstream and prevent pregnancy mainly by stopping the ovaries from releasing an egg. Nuva Ring conveniently fits into a woman’s active lifestyle. It is inserted into the vagina for 3 weeks at a time, then removed for 1-week break, during which time a menstrual period usually occurs. A new NuvaRing is inserted 1 week after the last ring is removed. As exact positioning is not critical, NuvaRing cannot be inserted incorrectly. Read the insert inside the package for more detailed information about the use, risks, and effectiveness of the NuvaRing vaginal ring.

Nuvaring Vaginal Ring Side Effects:

The most common NuvaRing side effects are acne, breast tenderness, changes in menstrual period, headache, irritation, nausea, vaginal infections, vaginal secretion, vomiting, weight gain, etc. If you are experiencing any severe side effects such as breast lumps, sharp chest pain, dizziness, fever, mood changes, breathing difficulty, vision changes, unusual vaginal bleeding or spotting, and serious allergic reaction (e.g., swelling of face, hands, mouth, legs or feet), please inform your doctor immediately.
