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.
Each NuvaRing only lasts for one cycle, whereas Annovera lasts for 13 cycles (1 year). Annovera is softer and more pliable than the NuvaRing. Additionally, Annovera does not require refrigeration.
When used correctly Annovera is 97.3% effective, which is comparable to other forms of contraceptives.
Many women who use Annovera do not experience any side effects and they can vary from person to person. However, some reported side effects from Annovera are:
- fungal infections
- abdominal pain
- menstrual cramps
- vaginal discharge
- urinary tract infection
- breast tenderness/pain/discomfort
- bleeding irregularities
- genital itching
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 market.
Yes, as long as you wash your ring with mild soap and water prior to each insertion and after each removal.
Annovera is designed to be worn during sex. However, if you’d prefer, you can remove it for up to 2 hours. If it is out of your vagina for more than 2 hours at a time, or at different times that add up to more than 2 hours over the first 21 days of your cycle, then you will need another method of birth control (for example, condoms) until it has been in your vagina for 7 consecutive days.
