My experience with the ring was great at first. No pill to remember, couldn't feel it...then about 2 months after I started using it I started getting really bad cramps and rectal pain when I was on my period. My pain eventually got so severe I almost passed out. I have since come off of the ring and am doing much better.

I actually checked periodically when I first started because I couldn't feel it. I had hideous cramps, acne, backaches, and nausea with my period before. Now, nothing. It's like a miracle. I have not had sex since I started taking it so ... Show Full Comment
