Common Questions and Answers about Loestrin vs nuvaring


Avatar f tn I am sure that 50% of this is true, but I have noticed that everytime I am on birth control, my mood is so different. I was put on the nuvaring last January and was in the hopital in February due to side effects. At the time, I didn't know exactly it was the birth control, I thought that it was just me. Well I stopped the nvaring for about two months and when I went back to my OBGYN, he told me that my body just needs to get used to it and that I would be fine.
Avatar n tn 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 2.
Avatar n tn Only one worked, which was loestrin 24. The Bleeding is moderate with smaller clots, I have cramping and these weird contraction type things. I am now on a pill called Low Ovural that is bogus I was on it 1 month the bleeding never stopped-my Doc keeps saying give it time....hope much time Lady? Until I bleed over? This whole situation makes me wish I was born a male!!!!!
Avatar n tn I had just gotten off Nuva Ring after two years use. I had been bleeding and spotting for almost 5 weeks on NuvaRing at the end. My ob took me off and handed me Yasmin-Pill. I opted not to use it when I got my period in October. So, on b.c. I was regular. I have been on b.c. for about 8 years, stopping once and got pregnant. When I was a teen I was irregular. Now that I am off b.c. for the first time in years I think back to when I didnt use birth control.
