Segesterone acetate and ethinyl estradiol combination is used to prevent pregnancy. It is a flexible birth control vaginal system (in the shape of a ring) that contains two types of hormones, segesterone acetate and ethinyl estradiol. It works by stopping a woman's egg from fully developing each month. The egg can no longer accept a sperm and fertilization (pregnancy) is prevented.
No contraceptive method is 100 percent effective. Birth control methods such as having surgery to become sterile or not having sex are more effective than vaginal systems. Discuss your options for birth control with your doctor.
This medicine will not prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. It will not help as emergency contraception, such as after unprotected sexual contact.
This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

If the vaginal system has slipped out and it has been out for 2 hours or less, wash it with mild soap and warm water, pat it dry with a clean cloth towel or paper towel, and reinsert it. You should still be protected from pregnancy. If the vaginal system has been out for more than 2 hours (including multiple removals), use an additional form of birth control (including condoms or spermicide) until the vaginal system has been in the vagina for 7 days in a row.
If you forget to reinsert the vaginal system after the vaginal system-free week, use an additional form of birth control (including condoms or spermicide) until the vaginal system has been in the vagina for 7 days in a row.
If you leave the vaginal system inside the vagina for more than 21 days, remove it for 7 days and then reinsert it for 21 days to go back to the regular schedule.
