This contraceptive ring (vaginal ring) is inserted once a month into the vagina to provide almost complete protection against pregnancy. NuvaRing is a combined contraceptive treatment that contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol (oestrogen) and etonogestrel (progestogen). These are synthetic forms of the two main hormones that are involved in the female menstrual cycle. The presence of both of these hormones make NuvaRing more effective than some of the progestogen only mini-pills. Also, the fact that it only needs to be changed once per month make the contraceptive ring different to all other hormonal contraceptives.
NuvaRing releases the hormones it contains into the blood stream. It works to manipulate the female menstrual cycle and make conception almost completely impossible. It does this by adjusting hormone levels, which are the key driver in the menstrual cycle. Changes in hormone levels lead to ovulation and prepare the body to develop a fertilised egg. By changing the hormone levels, this contraceptive ring works in three separate ways to help prevent pregnancy.
One of the main functions of NuvaRing is that it makes the body believe that an egg has already been released in a process that is commonly referred to as ovulation. This has the effect of preventing this from happening in the first place. It also thickens the mucus that is found in the cervix, making it incredibly difficult for any sperm cells to travel into the womb. Finally, the change of hormone levels that this contraceptive ring causes alters the lining of the womb, which makes it difficult for any potential fertilised eggs to latch on and develop.
A key benefit of this vaginal ring is that it provides almost complete protection against pregnancy but only needs to be replaced once a month. This is in contrast to most of the other hormonal contraceptive methods, which can have complicated treatment cycles and are often difficult to keep track of. As it is not a pill, it does not need to be digested and so NuvaRing can be seen as an alternative for women who suffer from digestive or stomach related side effects from using pills.
There are a few other benefits from using NuvaRing. This treatment can result in lighter and more regulated periods, so it can be used as a treatment for women who are experiencing heavy or painful bleeds. This contraceptive ring also contains a lower dose of oestrogen than many of the other combined pills. This makes it a possible alternative for women who may be sensitive to oestrogen but want to use a combined contraceptive rather than a progestogen only mini-pill.
The NuvaRing is a widely used and well-researched hormonal contraceptive, which is generally well tolerated. It can be used by women who are over the age of 18 and who want to use a combined contraceptive treatment. There are people who may not be suitable for the contraceptive ring due to current health conditions or medications that they are currently taking. You should not use NuvaRing if you allergic to the synthetic forms of oestrogen and progestogen that it contains. Also, you may not be suitable for this treatment if you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, circulatory issues or if you have a history of blood clots. If any of these apply to you, please consult with your doctor to find the right treatment option for you.

This contraceptive ring is very different to all other hormonal contraceptive methods in that it only needs to be replaced once per month. If you have not been using a hormonal contraceptive method, you should insert your first NuvaRing on the first day of your period, which will give you immediate protection. If you inset your first ring between day two and day five of your period, you will need to use a barrier contraceptive method for the following seven days. If are currently using a hormonal contraceptive, you should speak to your doctor in regards to when to start your treatment and what other temporary precautions you may need to take.
To insert the ring, you should squeeze it between your thumb and index finger so that the shape is vertical rather than circular. Each NuvaRing is designed to be used for three weeks, before it is then removed. You should have a seven-day rest period before the next contraceptive ring is inserted. You may experience a withdrawal bleed during this period but you will still be protected. You should insert the ring at the end of the seven days, even if you are still experiencing the withdrawal bleed.
When you buy NuvaRing online at 121doc, you will be provided with a detailed patient leaflet, which will give you full instructions on how and when to use this treatment.

NuvaRing has a lower dosage of oestrogen than some other combined contraceptives, so the risk of oestrogen related side effects is lower. As with all prescription medications, there is a risk of side effects in very rare cases. Possible symptoms can include abdominal pain, mood swings, headaches, breast tenderness and nausea. These symptoms are usually temporary in nature and should pass within a few days. If you experience anything persistent that causes you significant discomfort, you should consult with your doctor or contact our patient support team.
