I've been on the NuvaRing for 7 months and I love it! It is super easy to use especially after the experience of using a Diva Cup - I am super comfortable with my body and can put the ring exactly where it is supposed to go. I have never had the ring fall out nor have I experienced any side effects. I wear the ring for 4 weeks and then take it out. My period is lighter and lasts only 2-3 da ... Show Full Comment

I have been on the nuvaring for 5 years and in the last 6 months, I started to bloat excessively, develop acne, delelop melasma (skin pigment issue), experience mood swings and aggressiveness (though not necessarity sex drive related). For the first while it was great, but as my liver got better at filtering the hormones, the happy side effects gave way to not-as-desirable side-effects. I'm ... Show Full Comment

I recently started nuvaring 3 weeks ago after a several months off of the pill. I opted for nuvaring so that I wouldn't forget. I am on day 19 and my period has NOT gone away. It is not light spotting but a full blown cycle. I heard that it can lengthen your period the first couple months so I am trying to stick it out but I am starting to become concerned.

Comment:
I was on the nuva ring for about a year. Yes it was easy to use but after I lost my health coverage and discontinued my prescription for the nuva ring, I no longer have a menstrual period. Before starting the nuva I had very irregular menses and now I have no period at all. It seems as if while on the nuva ring my cycle was regulated and was right on schedule but now it refuses to come which is ve ... Show Full Comment
