These spikes can cause serious damage. The product is supp ... Show Full Comment

I, like many, started this after being on the pill for several years because at almost 30, I got tired of taking a pill everyday. Originally I was going to get Mirena, but apparently my cervix is way to small and had non of that so I went for the Nuva Ring. The first month was ok for the most part, started on time and everything, only had some extra discharge. But the second month is a whole diffe ... Show Full Comment
