Strengths of NuvaRing

NuvaRing® (etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring) is a vaginal ring used for preventing pregnancy. It is a combined contraceptive that contains two different hormones. Many people may wonder if there are numerous strengths of NuvaRing, but this form of birth control is only available in one strength.
NuvaRing comes in one strength, releasing 0.120 mg of etonogestrel and 0.015 mg of ethinyl estradiol per day. There is only one standard dosage for this contraceptive. One NuvaRing should be inserted vaginally once a month.
Three weeks later (on the same day of the week you inserted the ring), you should remove the ring for a seven-day ring-free break. You will usually start your period during this week. After seven days, you should insert a new NuvaRing (even if you are still having your period).
