Effectiveness of the intra-vaginal route in drug delivery

This session is not about revolution but about the small steps that we will need for the future regarding the question: what are the main advantages of vaginal contraception? The vaginal ring is a highly effective and well-tolerated method which is currently underutilized. The following is an overview of the role of the vagina in the application of drugs, as well as the adherence and effectiveness of contraception. We will look at the latest developments available and those which have not yet been marketed, in addition to the future developments of vaginal applications. Reviewing the forty-year development of intra-vaginal contraception, we will consider the advantages: avoiding first pass effect, the possibility of using lower dosages and thus possibly reducing the side effects.
