What is contraception?

Contraception is the deliberate use of artificial methods to avoid falling pregnant as a result of sexual intercourse. One common form of contraception is the contraceptive pill.


 How contraceptive pills work

The contraceptive pill prevents pregnancy by changing the body’s hormonal balance. It works by transferring synthetic hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) into the body, which controls ovulation and reduces the chance of an egg being fertilised by sperm. If used correctly and consistently, the contraceptive pill can be up to 99% effective in preventing pregnancies. All brands of the combined pill must be taken orally at roughly the same time each day for three weeks. You will then have a 7 day break, during which time you will have your period.


 How the NuvaRing works

The NuvaRing is a soft, plastic ring that is placed in your vagina to prevent pregnancy from sexual intercourse. Like the contraceptive pill, it contains the hormones and oestrogen which stops your ovaries from releasing an egg. The NuvaRing stays in your vagina for three weeks, then is taken out for one week. At the end of that week, you insert a new ring. When inserted correctly, you won’t be able to feel the NuvaRing inside your vagina. With perfect use, the NuvaRing is more than 99% effective.
