The purpose

It is not known if the use of NuvaRing® alters these innate and inflammatory biomarkers of inflammation. Hypothesis: The hypothesis is that NuvaRing® will alter inflammatory biomarkers of inflammation, such as vaginal defensin and cytokine levels, resulting in an overall anti-inflammatory milieu in the vagina. Specific aims of this study are to: 1. Determine biomarkers of inflammation, including defensins and cytokines, concentrations in women with normal vaginal flora (Nugent Score 0 - 3) before and after NuvaRing® use 2. Determine changes in the integrity of cervicovaginal epithelium and leukocytic concentration before and after treatment with NuvaRing® 3. Monitor for changes in the Nugent score before and after NuvaRing® use 4. Assess the antimicrobial activity of vaginal fluid before and after NuvaRing® use 5. Assess HIV infectivity ex vivo on biopsy specimens before and after NuvaRing® use Methods This is a prospective, open-label, nonrandomized study. Participants will serve as their own controls. The Clinical Research Center of Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, Virginia, U.S.A. will be the only study site.
