Alternative Name: Progesterone Vaginal Ring (PVR)
Description: A progesterone only 3-month vaginal ring, marketed specifically for breastfeeding women. Progesterone prevents resumption of ovulation and prolongs lactational amenorrhea. Given its short half-life orally, it is destroyed when ingested in mother's milk and there is no impact on the infant.
