Comment:
I switched to NuvaRing because I didn't want to worry about having to the pill anymore. I was previously on Sprintec for five years with no problems. For the first three months after I changed to the NuvarRing I was happy. And I was like YAY body acclimated to this with virtually no problems! I only had really mild itching when I placed the ring but it only would happen for a few hours and I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on Nuvaring for about 4 or 5 years now... wow long time. And I absolutely love it. So easy to use, I never feel it - throughout the day or during sex.

I've read a lot of comments about mood swings, physical reactions, and low sex drive ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Nuvaring for about four months, and loved it--except that it killed my sex drive almost immediately. Everything else about it was wonderful: less acne, super easy to use, convenient, made me go from a B cup to a C cup (with about a month of tenderness initially, but that went away). I also experienced spotting for the first month; annoying but manageable. I had very regular per ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The nuvaring started off as an amazing thing. Put it in once, take it out three weeks later, then a week off. For the first two months I was on it, it was easy, effective, comfortable, I saw no issues, only the positive. Now, in the third month of having it in, all the problems came out. I had had issues with other combination pills in the past. My use of Lo-Loestrin left me with achy arms and leg ... Show Full Comment
