Nuvaring 2.7 mg/11.2 mg is an effective contraceptive option for preventing pregnancy. The medication contains Etonogestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol as the active ingredients. Etonogestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol both are female hormones. This Ring is available by prescription and prevents the release of an egg from the ovary due to the presence of the two hormones. The combination drug also leads to changes in the cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for the sperms to reach the uterus or a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus wall.
Smoking can elevate the risk factors of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack if you are using a NuvaRing and are above 35. The ring will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases like HIV-AIDS. So, avoid unhealthy and unsafe sexual practices while using a ring. Diaphragm should also not be used as a backup contraceptive with a NuvaRing as there can be conflict in placements for both.
