Is the NuvaRing Safe?

Monday, 19 Jul 2010 09:06 AM

Question: Could you address the pros and cons of the NuvaRing vs. bioidentical hormones, and is the NuvaRing safer than synthetic hormones?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

NuvaRing is a birth control device that contains estrogen and progestin. Progestin is a synthetic form of progesterone that has been linked to a host of serious ailments, including breast cancer, strokes, and heart attacks. All hormones containing progestins should be avoided.
