Nuvaring - Working
Similar to oral contraceptive, the vaginal ring birth control helps stop women from getting pregnant. It is one of the efficient methods of contraceptive.
- Nuvaring is a plastic vaginal ring inserted in vagina and kept stable for three weeks. It releases ethinyl estradiol and etonogestrel, which do not make ovaries discharge mature eggs.
- The medicated contraceptive prohibits sperm meeting eggs by thickening mucus of cervix. It thins uterine endometrial, ceasing possibility of implantation or egg attachment to the womb.
Nuvaring - Dosage
The woman needs to use Nuvaring for 30 days or a month, by inserting the product in vagina, where it fits gently. The user does not feel discomfort once the birth control places in appropriately.
- As the ring is flexible, the female does not feel its presence even during intimacy. After three weeks, the user needs to dispose the product. For the next one week, no new ring is used.
- For preventing pregnancy the next month, new Nuvaring must be used from the beginning of fifth week (three weeks use + one week gap).
