It may be a tad expensive, but it's well worth it. I rave about it to all my girlfriends.

Othe ... Show Full Comment

This was very easy to use no need to remember to take a pill every day but...I expeirenced many side effects that I cannot live with. Mood swings like I have never had before, weight gain, muscle aches, severe headaches, total loss of sex drive(the 100% birth control!), dryness, and excessive tiredness during the day. I had to stop taking this evil little ring, it seems this drug option is either ... Show Full Comment

this birth control has left me with mood swings, depression right before the one-week break, and i've gained a few pounds. which i can't understand because i exercise and eat a normal healthy balanced diet. i think i may talk to my doctor about going back on the shot.
