NuvaRing is a small, flexible, plastic pessary device. It contains two hormones - an oestrogen; ethinyl estradiol, and progestin; etonogestrel.
NuvaRing releases 15 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 120 micrograms of etonogestrel over the course of 24 hours. These two hormones prevent ovulation (the release of an egg cell from the ovaries) from occurring while also increasing the viscosity of the vaginal fluids, making it difficult for sperm to travel to the womb.
It has an outer diameter of 54 mm and a cross-sectional diameter of 4 mm. It is flexible and can be manipulated to make insertion and removal easier. The vaginal ring is made of transparent plastic and is safe whilst inside the vagina.
With correct use, NuvaRing is 98% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies.
You can buy NuvaRing online from Prescription Doctor following a quick consultation with our doctor.
NuvaRing is inserted once a month, preferably at the beginning of your usual monthly menstrual cycle. It is removed after 3 weeks (21 days). This is followed by a 7 days ring-free interval where you will usually experience a menstrual bleed. A new NuvaRing is inserted after the 7 days.
The NuvaRing website offers an in depth guide on how to insert and remove the ring safely.
There are always side effects from using hormonal devices. Some common effects are listed, the incidence and likelihood is low as NuvaRing is normally well tolerated.
Some side effects include but are not limited to:
If you are unsure about any of the side effects listed above, speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you experience any side effects, report them to your doctor.
NuvaRing releases hormones to the bloodstream. Due to this, there can be negative effects when using NuvaRing alongside other medications.
Inform our prescriber if you are taking any of the following medicines:
NuvaRing does not dissolve. After 3 weeks, you will need to remove the ring and insert a new one.
NuvaRing should be stored below 25 °C (room temperature) and used within 4 months. Always check the expiration date on the packaging before using.
Some women can feel it is there, but many women don’t feel the ring once it’s in position. If you feel discomfort, try re-positioning the NuvaRing until it is comfortable.
You or your partner may feel NuvaRing during intercourse.
No, the NuvaRing cannot get lost inside you. The cervix prevents the ring from going too far. If you know the ring is inserted but cannot feel it with your fingers, speak to your doctor immediately.
If the ring breaks but stays in your vagina, the effectiveness should remain the same and added protection isn’t necessary.
If the ring breaks and falls out of your vagina, throw the broken ring into the bin and insert a new ring as soon as possible. Do not flush the broken ring down the toilet.
NuvaRing can fall out or be expelled from your vagina during intercourse or strenuous bowel movements.
If the ring has been out for less than 3 hours, rinse the ring in cool to lukewarm water, dry it and reinsert it as soon as possible.
If it has been 3 hours, but you are in the first or second week of treatment, rinse the ring in cool to warm water and reinsert as soon as possible.
If it has been 3 hours, but you are in the third week of treatment you can either:
Insert a new ring and continue the 21-day course. You may not have a period but you may experience spotting or bleeding.
Insert a new ring in no later than 7 days - you should use another form of contraception such as condoms for a week in this case.
Do not flush NuvaRing down the toilet.
Yes. Insert the NuvaRing before you insert your tampon. Be careful when removing your tampon as it may cause your ring to fall out. If this happens, wash your NuvaRing in cool to lukewarm water and reinsert it as soon as possible.
