    My experience with the ring was great at first. No pill to remember, couldn't feel it...then about 2 months after I started using it I started getting really bad cramps and rectal pain when I was on my period. My pain eventually got so severe I almost passed out. I have since come off of the ring and am doing much better.

    This is the first birth control I have ever taken. The ease is amazing-- I am a marathon runner and I have never been concerned about the ring falling out. I actually checked periodically when I first started because I couldn't feel it. I had hideous cramps, acne, backaches, and nausea with my period before. Now, nothing. It's like a miracle. I have not had sex since I started taking it so ... Show Full Comment

    I had a TERRIBLE experience with the Ring! It WAS easy to use, with no fear of forgetting to take the pill. But, that's it! For the first month, it was great! But then I started developing anxiety and depression. It made me paranoid about everything! For me, the hormone dosage was too high! I switched to this from OrthoLo bc the pill killed my sex drive for 3 yrs, and I hoped I could get it ba ... Show Full Comment
