    I've been on the ring for a month now and I'm very happy.The main problem I have with it is that my partner can feel it and says it hurts during sex. It has also accidently come out during sex, so now I just take it out before and use a back up method.Other than that, its easy to remember and the only noticable side effect is larger breasts-which is great.

    I've been on the ring for over a year now and have been very satisfied. The biggest draw for me was how easy it was to use. I've had some problems like mood swings and breast tenderness but no worse than when I was on the pill. The only difference for me is more discharge which can be annoying. I would definitely recommend it!

    The ring worked well at first but then I started to develop increased vaginal discharge and a lot of itching and cramping. I found out I had a vaginal infection from an over growth of bacteria that stemmed from the increased moisture from the ring. I was treated for the infection but the infections keep coming back. My doctor is switching me back to the patch. I would recommend reading up on all ... Show Full Comment
