FAQ

What exactly is NuvaRing?
The NuvaRing is a brand of vaginal ring consisting of a vaginally inserted flexible plastic ring. The ring, once inside the vagina, releases the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone.

The hormones released by the ring inhibit egg production by the ovaries.

The NuvaRing does not protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. It is inappropriate for all women.

How does NuvaRing work?
The NuvaRing is a small, flexible, and easy-to-place and remove ring. It must be positioned properly in the vagina for it to be effective. Once inserted, it should remain stationary and not move.

It functions by releasing the hormones oestrogen and progesterone. These hormones prevent the eggs from leaving the ovaries and thicken the cervical mucus, making it challenging for sperm to reach the eggs.

The device is typically worn for three weeks before being removed to allow menstruation. Within two or three days of the removal of the ring, a regular menstrual cycle will begin. After seven days, a new ring must be inserted.

If a woman inserts a ring within five days of the start of her period, she is immediately protected from pregnancy. If menstruation lasts longer than five days, the ring may still be inserted.

If the ring is to be inserted after five days, the woman must wait an additional week before being protected. A condom or spermicide should be used until the protection of the ring takes effect.

What are the advantages of using NuvaRing?
The primary advantage of using NuvaRing is pregnancy prevention. Once the NuvaRing has been inserted into the vagina, it will remain in place and release oestrogen and progesterone, preventing the ovaries from releasing an egg. The sex hormones also thicken the mucus at the neck of the cervix, making it more difficult for sperm to fertilise an egg.

When used correctly, the NuvaRing is said to be 99 percent effective, making it as effective as the contraceptive pill.

How do I use the NuvaRing?
To insert a NuvaRing into the vagina, perform the following:

Wash your hands and pat them dry.
The ring should be held between the thumb and index finger.
Press the ring’s sides together.
Lie down, squat, or stand on one leg, whichever position you find most comfortable.
Carefully insert the ring as far as possible into the vagina. It cannot proceed because it cannot pass through the cervix.
Maintain the ring for three weeks.
Remove the ring after three weeks by hooking the index finger under the forward rim and pulling it out.
NuvaRing dosage
Insert a vaginal ring five days after the first day of your period. Maintain the ring for three weeks. After three weeks, remove the suture and wait until bleeding begins.

Side effects & precautions
NuvaRing is an effective contraceptive method. The user must strictly adhere to the doctor’s instructions or those outlined in the patient information leaflet included in the packaging.

When first using NuvaRing and while the body adjusts to the changes in hormone levels, the user may experience some discomfort. These include menstrual bleeding, breast tenderness, and nausea. Typically, these side effects disappear after two to three months of use.

Combination hormones may not be inappropriate for all women.

Additional adverse effects of NuvaRing include:

It can increase the risk of strokes or heart attacks, especially among smokers and those over 35.
It can raise blood pressure.
There is a slight increase in the risk of breast and reproductive organ cancer.
