NuvaRing (etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring) is a hormonal contraceptive device that releases a combination of etonogestrel, a synthetic generation progestin, and the estrogen, ethinyl estradiol. NuvaRing is a small flexible ring that is designed to be inserted into the vagina once a month. It is kept in place for three weeks, and prevents pregnancy by releasing controlled amounts of those hormones into the bloodstream. Marketed by Merck & Co.’s Organon subsidiary, NuvaRing was introduced to the U.S. marketplace in 2001.
Etonogestrel is a form of desogestrel, a third-generation progestin. In February 2007, the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to ban oral birth control pills that contain desogestrel, citing studies which indicated they could double the risk of blood clots compared to second generation oral contraceptives. Last October, the FDA published a study comparing different methods of hormonal birth control that found NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, by 56% when compared to older birth control pills. The FDA study noted that combined hormonal contraceptives, including the etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring, “potentially result in higher sustained exposure to estrogen and hence, increased thromboembolic risk.” [citizen.org/notmypill; fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/DrugSafety/UCM277384.pdf]
