What Is NuvaRing (Etonogestrel)?

    • Smoke cigarettes and are over 35 years old.

    • Have a history of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack.

    • Have diabetes with kidney, eye, nerve, or blood vessel damage.

    • Are pregnant or may become pregnant.

    • Have a history of breast cancer.

  • How do I insert and remove the NuvaRing?

    To insert NuvaRing (etonogestrel, ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring):

    1. Wash and dry your hands.

    2. Hold the ring between your thumb and index finger, pressing the sides of the ring together.

    3. Lie down, squat, or stand up on one leg and carefully push the ring inside the vagina. Remember: The vaginal ring cannot go too far into your vagina, as it can't pass the cervix.

    To remove NuvaRing, hook your index finger under the forward rim and pull it out.

  • What are the possible risks and side effects of NuvaRing?

    The side effects of hormonal birth control are typically mild. Common side effects include:

    • Vagina irritation or discomfort

    • Weight gain

    • Headaches

    • Mood changes

    • Vaginal discharge

    • Breast tenderness

    • Thick cervical mucus

  • How effective is the NuvaRing?

    When used as prescribed, NuvaRing is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.

  • When can I start using NuvaRing?

    You can start using NuvaRing at any point during your menstrual cycle. If you begin NuvaRing during the first five days of your period, it'll work immediately. Starting on any other day of your menstrual cycle will take seven days to prevent pregnancy.

  • What does NuvaRing feel like when it is inserted?

    When inserted correctly, you shouldn't be able to feel NuvaRing. If you experience any vaginal irritation, try pushing NuvaRing up higher.

  • Will my partner or I feel NuvaRing during sexual intercourse?

    Your partner may feel NuvaRing during sexual intercourse. However, NuvaRing is unlikely to affect you or your partner's ability to feel pleasure during penetrative sex.

  • Does NuvaRing protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)?

    No, NuvaRing does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases or sexually transmitted infections, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Barrier methods, such as condoms or the cervical cap, can lower your risk of pregnancy while preventing STDs and STIs.

  • Do hormonal birth control methods cause cancer?

    Hormonal contraceptives may cause an increased risk of breast cancer and cervical cancer. The risks of endometrial, ovarian, and colorectal cancers are lower in women who use hormonal birth control.
