NuvaRing (Vaginal Ring) is a flexible transparent ring which is used as a birth control device in women.
This device basically works by releasing a hormone that will suppress the process of ovulation and will also help in the thickening of the cervical mucus so that the sperms do not reach the eggs to fertilize them.
A woman will have to wear this ring for three weeks after which it has to be removed so that normal menstruation could occur. After approximately one week of menstruation, a new ring is needed to be used.
This is the only hormonal contraceptive device that has got approval from the Food and Drug Administration but for using it one should get it prescribed by the doctor.
A woman should immediately call up her doctor if she is experiencing
Foul smell or itching in the vagina
