5 Reasons to Use Annovera for Birth Control
Ring, ring, a new birth control is calling!
Annovera is a year long contraception method that puts you in control. We broke down the need to know information about Annovera so you can see if it's a fit for you!
So, what is Annovera?
Annovera is a soft, pliable silicone ring you insert into your vagina for 21 days, remove and store for 7, and then reinsert again. It's about the size of a tampon and comfortable to wear, most women don't feel it at all!
5 reasons women love Annovera:
1. Lasts a year.
Annovera contains a year's worth of hormones, so there’s no need to get a new refill each month. That means less waste, less deliveries, and less hassle.
2. Continuous, low dosage delivery of hormones.
Annovera releases on average 0.15 mg/day of progestin (segesterone acetate) and 0.013 mg/day of estrogen (ethinyl estradiol), which is one of the lowest doses of estrogen on the contraceptive market. It releases less estrogen daily than the NuvaRing and most birth control pills.
3. Easy to use.
You don’t have to worry about getting a refill for an entire year. Just insert the ring, wear it for 21 days, then remove, clean it and store it for 7 days. During the 7 days it’s removed, you’ll get your period. After the 7 days are up, insert Annovera again for the next 21 days, and continue this process for 12 months. Plus, you don't even have to remove it for sex!
4. Procedure free.
This is the only long-lasting contraceptive method that is completely procedure free. You’re in control of insertion and removal. Just squeeze the ring to form a narrow oval shape. After finding a comfortable position, push the ring into your vagina as far as you can. When it is properly inserted, you should not be able to feel the ring. The ring is very flexible, making it easy and comfortable to insert yourself.
5. Highly effective.
When used correctly Annovera is 97.3% effective, which is comparable to other forms of contraceptives.
