Don’t want to take a pill every day? Consider NuvaRing—a flexible vaginal ring that contains a combination of progestin and estrogen hormones that prevent pregnancy and regulate your cycle. You only need to insert the ring (like a tampon) once every three weeks, eliminating the need for that daily “birth control” alarm. Inside the vagina, NuvaRing continuously releases pregnancy-preventing hormones. At the end of the three weeks, you remove the ring for a week, then simply insert a new ring. If used correctly, it’s just as effective as the pill. Like combination pills, the NuvaRing poses risks to those who smoke and are over 35, or have a history of blood clots or breast cancer. Keep in mind, the NuvaRing does not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like herpes and chlamydia—only condoms do that!

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.
