Nuvaring and rash

Common Questions and Answers about Nuvaring and rash

nuvaring

It's a burning/stinging sort of hurt and I was wondering if the NuvaRing caused a rash in my vagina. I've been using the NuvaRing for about 8 months now so I don't know why I'd be having a reaction to it now..
I went off the nuvaring a week early ( had fallen out and didnt notice til few days later) but since ive been off it I've had a rash between my legs and my arm pits have been itchy as well. Is that normal?
The itchiness has come and gone since then (I've been on the NuvaRing now for 3 cycles). About two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I had unprotected vigorous sex which went on for a much longer time than usual. The following morning my vagina was sore from all the friction, but we had sex again anyway. The day after that, we both noticed a rash on my vagina and on his penis. His cleared up after about a week, but I still have it.
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.
For about the last month or so, almost everytime my girlfriend and I have sex, I develop a weird rash looking thing on my penis. SOmetimes its 2 marks ( in the same place everytime), then sometimes its the 2 marks plus a few dots everywhere. I do have herpes, but this is nothing like it. THis is why is makes me question it. The marks are not raised, there is no bubble or sore, and they go away with time, anywhere between 1 and 24 hours.
The marks are not raised, there is no bubble or sore, and they go away with time, anywhere between 1 and 24 hours. After they go away it kinda looks like a scar ( the dots on the head dont scar), just a little darker than the rest of the skin. They do not really itch I dont think, and it doesnt burn when I urinate. It worries me though becuase I dont want these marks on me everytime. I went to my Dr. and she told me to put some cortisone on it which didnt really do anything.
It doesnt itch, it appears kind of blotchy and and is always there and the same color. Could this be rocasea or my nuva ring. I also smoke, could that affect my nuvaring and cause this? I need some advice!
I was on Nuvaring, and for about a week the abdominal pain went away, but then it came back. and with avengance. I had a few days where it hurt to stand up, but once I did it would loosen up a bit. The pain gets extremely bad when I get my period or am ovulating, hence why he think it might be connected to a stroke and the pituatary gland (linked to hormonal changes). Thank you for your prompt reply.
I have extremely sensitive skin, and thought it might have been just a rash. But yesterday night, after I got home from work, I noticed that it had become very sore in my anal and vaginal areas. I did a check and found a few lumps surrounding te area. I asked my mom for advice, and due to my medical history with anal fissures, she said that it was probably hemorrhoids. So I put some hemorrhoid cream on them and went to sleep.
My fiance recently developed a strange rash on the shaft of his penis. Its red and has clear blisters - some have pus in them. Backstory - We have been in a comitted relationship for over 3 years. I recently started using the nuvaring in march and that is when this started. The ay after we would have sex a sore - almost like a cut, tearing of the skin would show up on the shaft of his penis - usually it would go away for the most part in about a week of leaving it alone.
Well, it started with itching then I inspected my vagina and saw the white discharge and the lips around it were red and swallen. It almost looks like the skin has a rash and it the skin has broken and it bleeds as if I had a horizontal cut. I went to the doctor and gave me Vandazole. She said it is due to a virus. I applied as instructed and I don't have a lot of sex to say that this could be the reoccuring problem. However, it came back again.
can that be the cause?? And if so, how long will it be on my face and how do i get it off? I also go to school full time and have pretty bad allergies during the fall an i just got a new kitten that sleeps in the same bed, that ive had for a couple weeks. I don't know if that may be it. Please and Thank you!
I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
The majority of my upper arms and back are literally covered and my chest and stomach have quite a few. Some are all red bumps while others have a tiny white spot in the center of the red mark; none of these come out. I also had some hard large ones on my face and neck which would not come out. I made the mistake of going back on Estratest vs Estradiol at the same time. This makes a direct correlation between meds and side effects difficult for me.
I'm a 31 year old female weighing 198 lbs. I use the NuvaRing for birth control, and I take a multi-vitamin daily. I have low B12, and I'm on weekly B12 injections. This was diagnosed back in Sept. 2010 with a level of 203. In Dec. it had gone up to 408. At the end of Jan. 2011, I had a lot of life complexities that prevented me from getting my B12 shots (sick husband, driving kids, etc.). I started back on my shots 4 weeks ago.
I've gone to a general practitioner and they have me antibiotics, saying it looked like a bacterial infection (but no clear diagnosis) and to call back if it didn't clear up. They also said my white blood cell count was high in my urine sample. I've done a lot of general research on STD's and things of that sort, but it just doesn't fit any one of them. I've only had sex with one man.
About ten years ago, I broke out with a facial rash that lasted for a few months that my dermatologist had diagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis, and I think that might be what I have. The rash started on the right side of my nose and has ended up spreading into my cheeks a bit and on my chin with some sparse bumps on my forehead along my hairline. It is very itchy, red, and somewhat flaky.
After a few months I started experiencing burning after sex and pain during sex. I went to the gyno and got tested for all the STDs and was totally fine. I stopped having sex for awhile and then we started again about 2 months ago being really careful. Everything was getting better, but then last Monday we had sex twice in a row and it really hurt the second time and has been hurting since. It's a constant stinging and itching and intense irritation that won't go away.
I have been taking some natural detox for the blood in pills form, I was feeling ok but last nite and this morning my hands started up again but not terrible that i want to rip them off, it's more of a burning irritating itch that is under the skin, no rash no dry skin and it tends to be activated when I do things like opening a soda bottle top or holding the retractable lead for the dogs...
Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Dry skin lotions, Benadryl, Atarax, Sarna anti-itch lotion, Tide laundry soap, Gain laundry soap, 2 different shower soaps, prayer ** Prednisone Z-Pack helped asap until I had no more. I thought the rash was over and went tanning to help heal the scars and am back to square one.
I've had no pain at all during sex at all up until a month or so ago. When I'm on top or during doggie it hurts. Not "crying" hurts but more of an extreme discomfort. I use the NuvaRing so I thought maybe my boyfriends penis was catching on that and somehow that was the cause. But we had sex once with me on top when the ring was out and it still hurt.
1% if you can get a doc to prescribe it, it works. and it has tons of other skin/rash type uses.....from diaper rash to excema.

Hi All - I am a first-time poster here and feeling absolutely hopeless. I have included my entire medical and travel history in case it is relevant, but the current problems are really from Summer of 2010 on. I am a 26 year old caucasian female. 5'5" and 125lbs. Only medication is NuvaRing. Allergy to milk and shellfish. Used to be a 4.0 student on varsity sports. Now I struggle to walk up steps or remember things without post-its.
i hadnt given this a thought but i have check up tomorrow and im sure i will be asked this question... i was wanting to try the nuva-ring but not sure... cant do pills... mirena gave my cysts on ovaries.... what other options are out there ?
you know whats really weird i'm going through the same thing right now.. minus the iud. i'm going to the doctors on the 28th so i will fill you in. in one of the other posts i had about my symptoms a women told me i might have something called "atrophic vaginitus" something about not producing enough estrogen and it makes the walls of your vagina thin out.
But, it's not! Unfortunately, after being off the Nuvaring nearly a year and a half, the burning has started again. But, still no luck finding the cause after 5 doctor's visits. My husband is completely loving and understanding and we're still trying to figure out. Best of luck to everyone.
its extremely hard to watch her bring baby clothes and toys and such into the house and not cry in front of her. im not sure what to do. any advice?
