Monthly NuvaRing is a small, flexible vaginal ring that is about 2 inches in diameter. Like a tampon, you insert and remove it yourself. And once in the vagina, it doesn’t have to be in an exact position to work. You put NuvaRing in for 3 weeks, take it out, then put a new one in a week later.
Once you place NuvaRing in your vagina, it releases a continuous low dose of hormones that helps prevent pregnancy. When used as directed, NuvaRing has been shown to be 98% effective, just like the pill. But you don’t have to take it every day.
NuvaRing (etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring) is a flexible birth control vaginal ring used to prevent pregnancy. Available by prescription only.
