“I am absolutely thrilled with the Ava™ Contraceptive Patch! As someone who struggled with remembering to take birth control pills, the patch has been a lifesaver. Applying it once a week is incredibly convenient, and it stays securely in place no matter what I do. The peace of mind it provides, along with its discreet and comfortable design, has made my birth control experience stress-free and worry-free. I no longer have to count the safety period before engaging in intimate moments with my husband. We are both happy and content with the freedom the Ava™ patch has brought into our lives. I highly recommend the Ava™ Contraceptive Patch to anyone looking for a more convenient and reliable birth control option.” –

The contraceptive patch is a hormonal transdermal patch that is meant to be placed on the skin daily for pregnancy prevention. Like birth control pills, the contraceptive patch contains 2 types of hormones – Estrogen and Progesterone, making it a form of combined hormonal contraceptive method. It is also extremely effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly, with an efficacy of up to 97%.
Ava™ Contraceptive Patch works very similarly to birth control pills. When the contraceptive patch is placed on your skin, the Estrogen and Progesterone hormones are absorbed through the skin, into the body. It then works in the exact same manner as the birth control pill in preventing ovulation and hence pregnancy.
When the hormones are absorbed into our body via our skin, it sends signals to our brain to prevent or inhibit ovulation from happening each month. Additionally, the hormones in the Ava™ Patch also cause thickening of the cervical mucus in the vagina, which helps to create an unfavorable environment for the sperm to pass through.
“The contraceptive patch presents a compelling advantage over birth control pills with its weekly change requirement, offering a remarkable level of convenience and ease of use. Unlike pills that demand daily consumption, the patch’s once-a-week application is significantly less prone to forgetfulness, providing a more reliable and worry-free birth control experience. Moreover, the patch’s absorption through the skin eliminates concerns about gastrointestinal interactions or potential vomiting that can affect pill effectiveness. Its steady hormone release also contributes to more stable hormone levels, reducing fluctuations that some pill users may encounter.” says Dr. Evangeline Meyer, MD, OBGYN.
“Additionally, the patch’s unique absorption through the skin sets it apart from pills that rely on oral consumption. This direct skin absorption bypasses the gastrointestinal system, addressing concerns about potential interactions with food or medications that might affect pill effectiveness. It also eliminates worries related to vomiting or stomach upset, which can sometimes interfere with pill absorption. Furthermore, the steady hormone release provided by the patch ensures more stable hormone levels in the body compared to birth control pills. Fluctuations in hormone levels can sometimes lead to side effects in some pill users, but the consistent hormone delivery of the patch minimizes these fluctuations, offering a more balanced and predictable hormonal experience.” Dr. Meyer added.
In a comprehensive clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of the Ava™ Contraceptive Patch, promising results have been observed, cementing its position as a reliable birth control option. Over a period of 12 months, the study showed an impressive 99% success rate in preventing pregnancies among participants who used the Ava™ Contraceptive Patch correctly and consistently. This high level of effectiveness places the patch on par with other widely accepted contraceptive methods.
According to Dr. Evangeline Meyer, MD., the trial also assessed the patch’s user-friendliness and convenience. Participants reported a remarkably high satisfaction rate, with 94% expressing their preference for the patch over traditional birth control pills. The weekly application requirement garnered praise for being easy to follow, reducing the risk of forgetfulness, and ultimately contributing to better adherence.
Participants experienced minimal side effects, which were mostly mild and transient, highlighting the patch’s overall tolerability. No serious adverse events related to the patch were reported during the study, further supporting its safety for long-term use.
