Nicole, 20, the ring

I never thought I'd find a birth control for me.

Nicole tried a bunch of different birth control methods—and almost gave up more than once—before finding the right fit with the ring.

Nicole uses an alarm on her phone and a paper calendar to remember to insert and remove each ring.
