2. Tumors, the wording of the Paragraph has changed from:

 “Some epidemiological studies indicate that the long-term use of oral contraceptives displays a risk factor for the development of cervical cancer in women infected with human papillomavirus (HPV).

No epidemiological data on the risk of cervical cancer in users of NuvaRing are available (see ‘medical examination/consultation’)”
