I have used the Nuvaring for almost 3 years under the watch of my doctor. I love the convenience of not having to take a pill everyday. I have had only one ring in 3 years that didn't seem to want to stay in. It is easy to use with a tampon and have had no trouble during intercourse. I have experience some of the things mentioned in other interviews such as mood swings, headaches, discharge, a ... Show Full Comment

The truth is that my daughter died from blood clots in both lungs. She had also developed a dvt in her leg. She cannot give the rating, but I will. She was 29 years old. She had been on NuvaRing for two years. The so called low dose is not true. The manufacturer knows from their own studies that there are spikes in the estrogen release. These spikes can cause serious damage. The product is supp ... Show Full Comment

Originally I was going to get Mirena, but apparently my cervix is way to small and had non of that so I went for the Nuva Ring. The first month was ok for the most part, started on time and everything, only had some extra discharge. But the second month is a whole diffe ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this product for 4 months and by the end of the first month, I started getting chronic and very severe headaches. The worst headaches would begin a day or 2 before menstruation and last a day or 2 into my cycle. I have been on BC for over 10 years. I've tried the pill and the patch. The pill was just as effective without side effects, but I switched to the patch for ease of ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking the Ring after being on Beyaz for 2 years. I developed chronic headaches so that's why I switched. The switch to the Ring did eliminate my headches almost immediately. But I did not last more than 2 months on it for a couple of reasons. 1) My emotions were all out of whack, I felt like a crazy person. The week I took it out for my period I felt totally normal again. I would be ... Show Full Comment
