What's the Deal with: The Nuvaring

What's the Deal with: The Nuvaring

Condoms not your favorite choice of birth control?

Check out the Nuvaring. Once a month, you insert a little flexible contraceptive ring inside you. It releases a low dose of hormones for 3 weeks to prevent you from getting pregnant.

After 3 weeks, you remove the ring, which brings on your period. After 7 days, you insert a new ring for another 3 weeks, and so the cycle goes.

What's cool about the Nuvaring is that it's monophasic, meaning it delivers a consistent and steady dose of hormones for 3 weeks, so you won't feel the annoying ups and downs you might experience with regular birth control pills.

This is a great option for women who have a hard time remembering to take the Pill everyday.
