The NuvaRing vaginal ring is a combined hormonal contraceptive, but with a low dose of oestrogen and a type of progestogen that is similar to the one that's used in the implant. The vaginal ring may help control bleeding and improve side effects that you may find on the implant or mini pill, or with combined pills with higher doses of oestrogen. Despite what you might think - you can have sex with it in!
