What is Nuvaring?

Nuva Ring is a flexible ring about the size of a ponytail holder that is full of hormones. It is a form of birth control that provides the hormones vaginally instead of orally. You place it inside your vagina towards the cervix and leave it there for 3 weeks. Then you remove it for one week and insert another one for 3 weeks. This cycle keeps going. It is basically like taking the birth control pill and then the placebo pills are the same as when the Nuva Ring is removed.

Nuvaring is fairly affordable if you have insurance. For those who do not, you might try this Nuvaring coupon card which will get you a little discount at the pharmacy.
