Hormonal Methods
Contraceptive Vaginal Ring

The vaginal contraceptive ring, sold as the NuvaRing®, is a flexible plastic ring placed in the vagina near the cervix (the entrance of the uterus) and worn consistently for three weeks. The ring contains the hormones estrogen and progestin which stop ovulation and thin the lining of the uterus.

When used consistently and correctly, less than one percent of women will become pregnant over the course of one year.

The NuvaRing® does not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Use condoms to reduce the risk of STIs.

A prescription from a healthcare provider is required to obtain the NuvaRing®. To obtain a prescription for the NuvaRing® call University Health Services (UHS) at (512) 475-8242 to make an appointment with the Women's Health.
