I started nuvaring 3 weeks ago and am unsure how I feel about it. I havent gained weight and I dont really notice moodiness. My breasts arent tender and Im not having any increased depression.

I HAVE BEEN ON THIS B/C 10 MONTHS AND LOVE IT. THE ONLY INCONVIENCE THAT I CAN THINK OF IS THE DISCHARGE AND SOME MOODINESS. THAT IS NORMAL FOR ME AROUND MENSTRUAL TIME. I RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY.

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.

The nuva ring has a VERY high dosage of hormones. Almost instantly I became exhausted(sleeping up to 13 hrs a day!!) I gained weight(about 10 lbs so far) and am CONSTANTLY hungry. my breasts have grown drastically and are constantly sore. I have been struggling with lack of coordination and memory loss. But by far, the worst side effect of all is EXTREME DEPRESSION. I dont even feel like myself an ... Show Full Comment
