Abstract:

This one-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format to educate people about how to use the ring. It explains how the ring works, and outlines the two ways to start using it. It discusses how the ring is inserted, its removal, when to replace it, and timing with your period. Advice on what to do if the ring comes out, or if you stop using it and have unprotected sex, use of emergency contraception (EC), benefits, and risks is provided. The document clarifies that the ring does not protect from Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or HIV, and advises condom use.
