I've been on the ring for a month now and I'm very happy.The main problem I have with it is that my partner can feel it and says it hurts during sex. It has also accidently come out during sex, so now I just take it out before and use a back up method.Other than that, its easy to remember and the only noticable side effect is larger breasts-which is great.

I would definitely recommend it!

The ring worked well at first but then I started to develop increased vaginal discharge and a lot of itching and cramping.
