    I started taking the nuva ring and at first I was very happy with the results. It was easy and convenient. Sometimes though, there are more important things in life. 2 weeks after I had inserted the nuva ring, my boyfriend confronted me about my servere mood changes. One minute I would be crying my eyes out for no reason, the next I would be screaming and then I would be completely fine. I ha ... Show Full Comment

I used Mircette and OrthoTr ... Show Full Comment

    I have used the ring for 3 years. I suffer from menstrual migraines and use the ring for 4 weeks at a time instead of 3 in order to suppress my cycle which has reduced my migraines and kept my moods level. No side effects. Very easy to use. Every once in awhile my husband feels it but it has never hurt or been an issue. Great method of BC if yuo have to use hormonal BC this is the easiest.

    After using the pill for years and worrying when I missed one or two I switched to the patch. I hated it. I was always nervous it was falling off and I replaced it often, which is rather expensive. I also had many side effects commonly associate with it. So, despite being nervous about inserting the ring I got it. I watched out for the same side effect, but they never manifested, thank goodnes ... Show Full Comment
