I want to share my experience on Nuva Ring in case anyone else is wondering if there is something wrong with them. First of all, birth control and I have never really been friends. I tried oral birth control as a teenager, and my skin broke out, and I felt a bit depressed. After my first baby, I tried Paragard, but got pregnant while on it.

I haven't had any problems using the nuvaring. I did stop using it for about 2 1/2 months and now that I've started again I have "unplanned light bleeding." My doctor said that it could last from a few days to 2 months. Depends on the person. My body is getting used to the hormones again. Other than that I would definitely recommend it!!!
