Nuvaring pros and cons - let your patients know this information!

Nuvaring is one of the innovational method of contraception. It has hormonal action but does not come in the form of pills. It is a hypoallergenic hormonal ring that is inserted into a woman’s vagina. The ring is elastic and when inserted into a woman’s body, repeats the shape of her inside.  It contains micro doses of such hormones as estrogen and progestagen that prevent pregnancy. It is a monophasic combined contraceptive method that is inserted by woman herself in one of the first five days of menstrual period.

How does Nuvaring work? Under the influence of the temperature of a woman’s body, a ring extracts little doses of hormones every day. They get straight into the ovaries and uterus and interfere with the ovulation process.  This process does not involve the endocrine system because the hormones are getting into a woman’s sex organs at once.
