Annovera

Annovera

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.

How does Annovera work?

Annovera is a combination hormonal birth control that is inserted for 3 out of 4 weeks every month. It contains a year's worth of hormones, so there’s no need to get a new ring from the pharmacy each month. You leave it inserted for 21 days and remove, clean, and store it for 7 days.

What are the active ingredients in Annovera?

Is Annovera sanitary?

Yes, as long as you wash your ring with mild soap and water prior to each insertion and after each removal.
