birth control


Question by  DeborahH (18)

What are my chances of getting pregnant while on nuvaring?

I am on nuvaring and am concerned that I may be pregnant.

With perfect use, NuvaRing is between 98% and 99% effective. This means that among women who used it perfectly every time, 1-2 out of every 100 will get pregnant anyway within one year. This is the best accuracy of any contraceptive product, which is why people often combine multiple birth control methods.

Nuvaring is a very good form of birth control it is effective as the pill when used properly. So your chances of getting pregnant are between 1-2 percent. But it could happen just like any other birth control it's not 100%. It can be dangerous to be pregnant with the ring in so you should talk to your doctor.


Answer by  John (9008)

If used properly, nuvaring is a very effective form of birth control. The chance of getting pregnant is less than one percent.


Answer by  Tracy27 (96)

If you are using the product according to the directions the Nuvaring is 99% effective. The directions are to insert the ring in the vagina for 3 weeks then remove the ring for 1 week when you will likely have a "period" and then to insert the next ring and leave in for 3 weeks. See your doctor!

Nuvaring works by altering your uterus's mucus membranes. Not sure it's 100% effective the first month you use it. Also, it's not effective during your cycle.
