What is Nuvaring?
The device for women, who consulted with a doctor before, is a smart way of birth control, also keeping your choices safe. Nuvaring is an ingenious and convenient method that could help you if used correctly.
By releasing hormones on a woman’s body, the Nuvaring device prevents any pregnancy.
How Nuvaring works
Discussions about contraception often center around the pill or intrauterine methods. But the vaginal ring has a lot to offer, differing on what you’re looking.
Nuvaring is a flexible device, like a plastic loop that is placed into your vagina and produces hormones to prevent unexpected pregnancies. It uses estrogen and progestin to make the uterus empty.
Mary Jane Minkin, a M.D. and clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale Medical School describes her Nuvaring experience. She said, “People have mysterious thoughts about it, but it is like taking a combined hormonal birth control pill in another form.”
How does estrogen work? It smothered the ovulation, meaning that your ovaries won’t release any eggs from sperm to fertilize. The progestin, on the other hand, makes your cervical mucus stronger so that sperm won’t travel anymore.
It also weakens your uterine lining. This process won’t give the fertilized egg enough nutrients to grow. You must remember that Nuvaring won’t keep you safe from any sexually transmitted infections.
Nuvaring helps you lower your pain when you’re on your period. The progestin from the device succeeds in reducing the lining of your uterus so that you can have a lighter flow.
Also, the prostaglandins, which give you very much pain sometimes, is lowered in a significant way.
Let me tell you some things about me: I am very passionate about literature, music and cinematography. Practically, I based all my life on these stuff! I am an easy person to talk to, discuss anything and very understanding no matter the subject. I like to do some personal research by myself, every single day, because it’s like a mechanism to me that helps cope with all that bad stuff in life, I guess. Well, to sum everything in a few words, I think writing is what I will forever consider, part of me.
