whether NuvaRing increases the risk of blood clots
Women will ask whether NuvaRing increases the risk of blood clots.
Developing a blood clot from hormonal contraceptives is rare...but possible. Any birth control that combines "estrogen" and "progestin" hormones can slightly increase clot risk.
This is the case with NuvaRing...since it's a combo of the estrogen, ethinyl estradiol, and the progestin, etonogestrel.
