I haven't had any weight gain, mood swings, or loss of sex drive like I did with the Nuvaring
(I HATED the NR!), in fact, my sex drive has improved immensely (isn't that why I'm on BC in the first place?).
Just a few notes, because so many people have talked about their pain upon insertion:
I don't have any kids, and yes, it hurt. But my doc did several things:
1.) She told me to take 800 mg of aleve or advil an hour prior to insertion
