Novaring

Were you looking for information about NuvaRing? Novaring is a common misspelling of NuvaRing.
NuvaRing® (etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring) is a contraceptive that comes in the form of a flexible vaginal ring. It mainly prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation, but also works by altering the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. NuvaRing is inserted into the vagina once a month, left in place for three weeks, and then removed for a ring-free week (during which you will have your period). Potential side effects of this form of birth control include vaginal irritation, headaches, and weight gain.
