TherapeuticsMD Receives FDA Approval for ANNOVERA™

In August 2018, TherapeuticsMD, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical organization headquartered in Florida, the U.S., declared that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved its prescription birth control named ANNOVERA™. It is reversible, procedure-free, and patient-controlled. The latest contraceptive vaginal system is a soft and small flexible ring that is capable of preventing ovulation up to 13 cycles.

As per one of the company officials, “ANNOVERA™ will be able to meet the surging demand from women who are frequently counselled not to use long-term contraceptives and from those who have never given birth. It represents a new entrant for healthcare providers and women by delivering the first long-acting and procedure-free product. Women can take control of both her menstruation and fertility.”
