Patient : I have a question concerning the effectiveness of both male condoms and the nuvaring.
Nuvaring's website claims that If NuvaRing is used according to the directions, your chance of getting pregnant is about 1 to 2 percent a year.
While about.com says the following about male condoms With perfect use, 2 women will become pregnant after one year.
If these contraceptions are used as directed, then what accounts for the 2 percent chance of pregnancy?
