Ethinyl Estradiol/Etonogestrel (Vaginal Ring)

Etonogestrel is a contraceptive medication that women can use to prevent pregnancy. This medication comes in a ring that fits the woman’s vagina. The woman inserts it into her vagina and leaves it there for three weeks. After three weeks, she removes the ring and takes a week off before putting a new ring in. While the ring is in, it infuses estrogen into the woman’s body through her vagina to help prevent pregnancy.

Side Effects/Warnings

Women who use this form of birth control should be aware that it does not protect against HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.
