The vaginal ring which is also called as V-ring are the devices (polymeric drug) that provide controlled release of medications for intra vaginal administration for a longer period of time. It is inserted in the vagina which gives contraception protection. The device comes in one size which fits most women. It is stated that hormones present in the rings had little risk of developing breast cancer. The ring products that are currently available include femring (for hot flashes relief), estring (for vaginal atrophy treatment). On leaving the ring for three weeks in the vagina, it releases the same hormones (estrogens) that are being used in the contraceptive (birth control) pills. Each ring gives one month of birth control by wearing continuously for three weeks with a week off. In case of continues contraception, users can wear the ring for full four week cycle. As they release estrogen, there is a risk of side effects that include heart attack, stroke and other effects. The vaginal ring can be easily inserted and removed as the walls of vagina hold them in place. The ring can be also removed prior to intercourse. The vaginal ring had a failure rate of 0.3% while prescribed and 9% when used frequently.
