Nuvaring and cramps

Common Questions and Answers about Nuvaring and cramps

nuvaring

I was just wondering what I should expect with my period? Should it be the same as it was with the pills (moderate at beginning then lighter and very little cramps) or should I expect something different? How was your experience with Nuvaring? So far I love it but was wondering other peoples opinions.
was spotting a lot and crampy, but not a full blown period. Normally it's very obvious as I get two full days of terrible awful cramps. It's friday and I havent gotten the official period yet. The endometriosis pain hurts so much its shooting down my legs, back is killing me, stomach feels like im gassy or constipated or something. I was getting crampy off and on, and I had two ovarian cysts burts a few years ago so I keep thinking if the pain is related to something like that too.

I use nuvaring and have been taking 100mg of Topamax for migraines. I am 2 weeks away from starting my period but have been experiencing unusual symptoms. I have tender breast with unusually visible veins and clear nipple discharge, I have been having some period like cramps with lower back pain, my sense of smell has been heightened, fatigue, and headaches just about everyday for the past few days. I don't know if this is just from the hormones in the nuvaring or if I could be pregnant?

Just wondering?? I feel like i'm super depressed and extremely moody and the only change that i can pinpoint is the nuvaring!

Also my breast have gotten much much larger im having pretty bad cramping randomly lower abd and have noticed iv been having lots of leg cramps! I definitly dont think its a clot or anything!
I just started NuvaRing today but I was very hesitant because I've never tried any form of birth control before and I was worried about side affects such as weight gain. Has anyone ever tried Nuvaring to help fibroids? Does it helps shrink the fibroid or only help with decreasing the period clots? Also since it is suppose to prevent ovulation and prevent maturing our eggs, is this in any a way a form of saving my eggs for future fertility once I decide to have kids? Thanks for your time.
They didn't give me a reason my my period is late and why these cramps are so bad. I'm concerned about a tubal pregnancy. Or is it my body adjusting getting off nuvaring. I'm 20 nd have a 2 year old son. please help.
I went without taking anytype of birthcontrol for a month, the sunday after my period had started i inserted the NuvaRing. Now I am having horrible symptoms which include cramps, cravings, weight gain, acne, head aches, tiredness, and much more. Should i try it for another month to see if the symptoms go away? What could be wrong?
Are you sure you were supposed to start Nuvaring on the first day of your period? I ask because Im on Nuvaring and was directed to put it in the Sunday AFTER the first day of my period. Then leave it in for 3 weeks and take it out on Sunday and leave it out until the following Sunday.
I've had absolutely horrible menstrual cramps for the past several years, to the point that my doctor prescribed percocet for me to take for every period (I can't take NSAIDs like Aleve, Motrin, etc.). I got a Mirena IUD to see if that would help (it didn't, but I still have the IUD) and have been using Nuvaring for almost two months.
Anyone try nuvaring as hormone treatment to suppress endometriosis with cysts? (until I have surgery in 6 months) I get really bad side effects with any hormonal birth control I've tried in the past, so far I have no noticeable side effects, except I inserted the nuvaring on the first day of my period, over 2 weeks ago, and my period hasn't ended yet!
I am now on day 3 of no nuvaring and I am cramping bleeding large blood clots and I cant find any info about what to expect after the removal and stopping the use of nuvaring
i used to have the same problem as mimik, until after i had my first born. After i had him, my periods got light and no cramps and only lasted a few days. same with my second child until recent.... the only thing that eases the cramps is a super hot bath, and i will stay in there for about 2 hours. and a heating pad and then a vibrating massage thing, like for the neck. u put the heat pad on, and then the massager ontop, with a blanket... oh does it do wonders....
I started experiencing really light spotting from May 8 until today. I'm spotting light to dark brown, and it has not been accompanied by cramps or anything remotely close to what I feel when I have a normal period. Today would be when I'm supposed to get my actual period, but I'm taking into account the fact I just got off the birth control and my periods could be irregular.
i have had bleeding for 3 months and have bad cramps and blood clots and stopped bleeding for 10 days in that 3 months finly stopped 1 day well should i say more im waiting 1 more mounth then ???????????
The cramps have continued, mainly bowel cramps and nausea. I saw a doctor and they said it was probably either IBS or side effects from the Nuvaring. I have been taking omeprazole, hopefully it will help.
my last period i spotted and had nothing for two days and then started bleeding for two days and that was it. i have never experienced this before it is always 5 days long and light. i have a slight cold going on three weeks now, having mild cramps and its almost a week after my period (never had this happen before either) and my husband has told me that I have been really moody lately. Is this from the Nuvaring or could i possible be pregnant?
Naturally my husband and I were excited and whatnot especially after the long waiting game for my period (we had kept the NuvaRing in storage and my irregular period cycle made this an unbearable wait). The second we got home I slipped in the NuvaRing and had unprotected sex. That night I had the mother of all cramps and had to be massaged to sleep. I inserted a tampon and the next morning the bleeding had only filled the very tip of it.
I've been experiencing lower middle abdominal cramps for a few weeks now. I'm not on my period. At first I thought it was muscle soreness from working out, but it's becoming clear that it's not. In case this is relevant information, I aborted a molar(sp) pregnancy 14 months ago. I started the NuvaRing for two months after that as the first hormonal birth control I've been on, took a break from it, but I've been on it again for the last three months.
i missed my period that week. when i took out the nuvaring after three weeks im now spotting light brown and having cramps. i did have unproteced sex before i started Nuvaring but i took Plan B with in four days of unprotected sex and he pulled out. could i be pregnant?
I still felt sick after taking the ring out so I went to my colleges health center and had a pregnancy test performed and it was negative on Wednesday. And since Wednesday I have been bleeding. This bleed was much heavier than the week before and has now lasted 5 days I have been using tampons, the blood is dark, rich red with some clots and little tissue specks. My doctor said this was a withdrawal bleed from going off the bc two days in and to allow myself to have it.

I came off nuvaring ring after my last cycle.. this month I am late with cramps and tender breasts and normal..
I have not had any major problems...in fact it's cleared up my mood swings and cramps and things of the like. But, I put in a ring last November, and it was supposed to be out December 9th. My period started on December 6th...with the Nuva ring still inside me...I am not sure what to do and I don't know if this is normal. Does this happen often??? Is this right? Is this indicating something is wrong??? Please help! Why is my period starting before i remove the ring??
Two days into the third round I had terrible cramps and burning lower back ache which I experienced towards the end of the last cycle. I figured it was the nuvaring that was making me sick so I decided to take it out for good. The symptoms didn't go away and now I am experiencing nausea, indigestion, diarrhea and weird period like pain in my pelvis.

I never had periods on the pill but since I have started the nuvaring I have not missed one. I removed my ring on sunday and still havnt started and I usually start right away and have cramps. I am not having any cramps to even show I may start. I have taken two pregnacy tests that are negative but Im still freaking out my boyfriend of two yrs and I just split up this month so Im very worried. Is this normal for women using nuvaring to skip there periods?
The thing is, I originally got the Mirena because I actually got PREGNANT on the nuvaring! And based on the timing of when I got pregnant and how diligent I was about using the thing correctly, the doctor I saw was pretty sure that that nuvaring just failed (it is after all about 95% effective). So I'm sick of Mirena but afraid to go back to the Nuvaring or the pill. Any advice?????
