Basic Information On Nuvaring
Nuvaring is a combined hormonal contraceptive that is to be used by women. It comes in the form of a ring-like device that can be inserted into the vagina. This flexible, plastic ring contains two active ingredients horomones ethinylestradiol (synthetic oestrogen) and etonogestrel (synthetic progesterone). This combined birth-control pills work by a three pronged action; they prevent the release of ovum from the ovary, alter the cervical mucus making it difficult for sperms to reach the ovum and also change the endometrial lining to discourage implantation. With correct and appropriate use, Nuvaring has been shown to be as effective as the pill in preventing unwanted pregnancy.
Precautions / Side Effects For Nuvaring
Before you buy Nuvaring, consult with your healthcare provider if this is the right choice for you. Before prescribing you this method, the doctor will review your risk for heart attacks, stroke and blood clots. If you smoke more than fifteen cigarettes a day and are over 35 years in age, it may increase the chances of cardiac trouble. Do not use this contraceptive method if you have had breast or liver cancer or if you have other hepatic problems. Stop the use of this device, if you are pregnant or think you are pregnant. The use of this technique is not recommended during breast-feeding as ethinylestradiol and etonogestrel may harm the baby. Nuvaring does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
The common side effects reported after use of the ring include severe headache, increase in weight, nausea, vaginal secretions and infections of the vagina, vomiting, alterations in the menstrual cycle, or depression. Some serious side effects of the drug include a slightly increase risk of blood clots, cancer and heart attacks. Call your doctor instantaneously if you see symptoms related to these like stabbing chest pain, blood in the cough, pain in the calf, sudden vision changes, jaundice, breast lumps, elongated and irregular vaginal bleeding, swelling in the fingers and ankles.
Properly sanitize your hands before removing Nuvaring from the pouch. Compress the ring between your thumbs and index finger and insert it into the vagina while lying, squatting or standing with one leg up. Once it is inside the vagina, the exact position of the ring is of little significance. The ring should be removed after three weeks and disposed properly. To continue the contraceptive protection, insert a new one exactly after a week.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
