Annovera

Description

Annovera makes using contraception easier than ever. It is the only birth control ring that lasts for a year, which means only one yearly delivery, less waste, and more freedom. It is a flexible vaginal ring that contains a combination of progestin and estrogen, hormones that prevent pregnancy and regulate your cycle. When the ring is inserted it releases a steady stream of hormones throughout the month. Annovera is designed to be inserted (like a tampon) and worn for 21 days, removed and stored for 7 days, and then reinserted again. When used correctly, it is as effective as other forms of birth control. However, it does not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) - only condoms can do that.

FAQ

Does this medication help with heavy periods?

If you are experiencing heavy periods or painful cramps, this medication can make your symptoms less severe. Our doctors are here to help - if you have heavy periods, let us know in the consultation so our doctors can make sure you find the right fit.

Does this medication make you gain weight?

Like most modern birth control pills, this medication lacks estrogen levels that are high enough to cause weight gain. Abundant recent evidence shows that there is no causal link between modern birth control and weight gain (aside from the shot, Depo Provera). If weight gain is a concern for you or you experience it after starting birth control, reach out to us so our doctors can discuss your options with you.

Does this medication cause acne?

Birth control has long been prescribed as treatment for acne. If acne is a concern for you, let us know in the consultation and our doctors will help you find the right brand for you.
