The purpose of this study is to determine whether teens and young women would prefer the Nuvaring to oral contraceptive pills after having tried both methods.
Sexually active young women (n=130), aged 15-21 years, were randomly assigned to use either the vaginal ring or oral contraceptive pills for an initial study interval of three 28-day cycles, followed by three cycles of the alternate method.
