    I absolutely love this method. It's easy, it fits into my lifestyle, it's low hormone. It's awesome. The only problem is that I keep getting UTIs. I really, really want to stay on it but I've been getting a UTI every month now. If your bladder is very sensitive DONT USE. Otherwise this bc is amazing.

    It was extremely simple to use; I never felt it, my boyfriend never felt it, and I didn't experience any side effects until Week 3. This happened 2 out of 3 months that I was on the Ring. Week 3 always made me feel like I was losing my mind...terrible moodiness, and I'm normally a happy person. I would get shaky and itchy, and it would feel like someone was sitting on my chest, and like my ... Show Full Comment

However I have noticed more acne break outs and experianced some rather unpleasent vaginal side effects. I have never had any kind of yeast or vaginal infection in my life before using the NuvaRing.
