NuvaRing® Instructions & Directions
Detailed NuvaRing® instructions and directions for use are provided in each monthly Nuvaring® package. There's also plenty of information about how to use a Nuvaring® on the product's website. Although the makers of Nuvaring® market its product as simple and easy, its accompanying instructions are quite another matter.
Detailed Nuvaring® Instructions for Use
The Nuvaring® instructions for use include general information about use and go into great detail about a number of issues, including:
- Nuvaring® insertion — e.g., how to know whether the Nuvaring® is properly inserted; how it can be expected to feel
- The flexible nature of the Nuvaring®
- If this will be a new routine for the Nuvaring® user
- If a woman is switching to Nuvaring® from another hormonal birth control method, or another type of birth control
- If she has had a baby, a miscarriage, or an abortion recently
- Menstrual periods during Nuvaring® use (including spotting, experiencing no period after removing a NuvaRing, and more)
- Removing a Nuvaring® "early" (before the end of the third week)
- What to do when an abnormal Pap smear is obtained
- After stopping Nuvaring® use — e.g., how long before the next period after stopping
Precautionary Nuvaring® Directions
Many precautions are included in the Nuvaring® directions for use. The description of potential Nuvaring® side effects and problems is extremely lengthy. The section of the website entitled "Who Should Not Use the NuvaRing" is also very long, with many conditions listed and a special boxed warning stating that women who smoke, and especially women over 35 who smoke, should not use the NuvaRing.
The "What Should I Avoid" section of the Nuvaring® website is quite large; the activities or steps to avoid include breastfeeding and many types of medications. The instructions also go on to discuss yeast infection treatments, herbal supplements, vitamins and the use of a diaphragm as a back-up method of contraception.

- Nuvaring® heart attack
- Nuvaring® stroke
- Nuvaring® blood clots in the legs or lungs
- Increased risk of breast cancer
- Heart disease
