Vaginal Ring HIV

Study finds anti-AIDS vaginal ring partially protects women

This photo provided by the International Partnership for Microbicides shows a ring that is coated with an anti-AIDS drug designed for women to insert into the vagina once a month to reduce the risk of HIV infection. Researchers say women who inserted a vaginal ring coated with an anti-AIDS drug once a month were partially protected against HIV infection.
