    I began the Nuvaring about 6 months into my new relationship and I wish I never did. The Nuvaring gave me the most intense mood swings I have ever experienced in my adult life. Every month for a week I began to feel a lack of connection with the people around me as well as super depressed but couldn't put my finger on what I was sad about. I began starting huge fights with my boyfriend, my fri ... Show Full Comment

    It was very easy for me to put in and once I put it in I never had to adjust it or anything, I couldn’t feel it either BUT I got not one but TWO UTIs in the 3 weeks I had it in. I never get UTIs so after getting two in such a short amount of time I decided to take the nuvaring out and not use it anymore.

    I absolutely loved the nuvaring at first. The. One day I was getting really bad chest pain, I went into the hospital because I just knew something was wrong. They diagnosed me as having a pulmonary embolism. I was only 21 years old! I could’ve died. This happened 8 years ago. So no I do not recommend this birth control!

    Iâ??ve, personally, had a great experience with Nuvaring. Iâ??ve been using it for 2 months and itâ??s the first form of hormonal birth control Iâ??ve tried. I couldnâ??t imagine relying on remembering a pill everyday so I thought Iâ??d give it a try. Itâ??s super easy to use and I downloaded an app that tracks the insertion and removal dates so forgetting is not ... Show Full Comment

    I have only been on the nuvaring for approximately half a year however I have found that it has caused my sex drive to decrease substantially. Both my boyfriend and I can feel the ring during intercourse and I find that I feel the ring rubbing when I am walking around. I get intermittent pain to my cervix & I have tried repositioning the ring etc however I still have irritation. Has anyone had ... Show Full Comment
