My experience with the ring was great at first.

I have not had sex since I started taking it so ... Show Full Comment

I had a TERRIBLE experience with the Ring! It WAS easy to use, with no fear of forgetting to take the pill. But, that's it! For the first month, it was great! But then I started developing anxiety and depression. It made me paranoid about everything! For me, the hormone dosage was too high! I switched to this from OrthoLo bc the pill killed my sex drive for 3 yrs, and I hoped I could get it ba ... Show Full Comment
