NuvaRing

NuvaRing® was approved by the FDA in 2001.  It is a prescription-only contraceptive vaginal ring that contains a combination of desogestrel and estrogen hormones.  Etonogestral is a synthetic form of the naturally-occuring hormone progesterone and is the active metabolite of desogestrel.  NuvaRing® is used by approximately 1.5 million women worldwide today.

 

The 2.5” NuvaRing® is inserted into the vaginal canal and emits estrogen and progesterone directly into the blood stream, for 21 days of protection. The user removes the ring for 7 days, during her regular menstrual cycle. The NuvaRing® birth control device has been linked to serious medical problems, including pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), heart attack, stroke, and death.
