Nuvaring hormone levels

Common Questions and Answers about Nuvaring hormone levels


Avatar f tn When these hormone levels decrease and there is sloughing of the inner lining of the uterus you get your periods. If you miss the periods you may consider pregnancy in the following circumstances: if the ring was out for more than 3 hours during the 3 weeks of ring or you waited longer than 1 week to insert a new ring or you have left NuvaRing in place for longer than 4 weeks. It is best to consult a gynecologist and get yourself evaluated. Best of luck and take care!
1134902 tn?1296069744 anywho my question is...could this be caused by a hormone imbalance brought on by my intense workout? even tho Im only spotting, Im still cramping. My family doc is booked up until the new year, so I can't see her anytime soon.
Avatar m tn I just had a baby two months ago and the doctor started me on the Nuvaring at my six week check up. Since then I noticed a white mucus discharge everyday with a vinager smell. I dont know if this is my body reacting to the nuvaring or what. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn You had pit nuvaring for less than 24 hours and bleeding again after such small interval could be possibly due to changes in hormone levels. This is only a possibility. It is best to consult a gynecologist and discuss your doubts. A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn Your first period will usually be normal becuase you still have enough hormone in your system to regulate it, but as the synthetic hormone levels decrease your body has to work to reregulate the natural hormone production. For piece of mind you could take a pregnancy test. If you have had unprotected sex since coming off nuva ring you do have a chance of pregnancy. If its negative however it's most likely due to coming off the BC.
Avatar f tn If HPTs are negative it is possible that your body is adjusting to the changing hormone levels. For more queries and assistance visit your gynecologist. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn One of the unspoken risks of being an egg donor is that sometimes a woman gets information she does not want from the screening testing. While an FSH value of 11 might be higher than the program cut off, it does not absolutely mean you will have trouble conceiving. Many women would be very happy to have that level. It does mean that with this knowledge you will now likely worry.
Avatar f tn Also I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests. The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of your pregnancy. I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn It's the only time my periods were regular but the hormone levels were perfect. I didn't gain weight or get moody. And stopping and starting my period was a piece of cake, not like when I was on the pill.

Avatar f tn I went on a low carb diet (atkins) and it leveled out my hormone levels and made the hair growth considerably slow down. It was better than taking BC pills because once your hormones levels are normal on this diet, they stay that way. No fluctuations. I am just excited because it worked for me, but a lot of people are really skeptical about the diet. It works, so anyone who doesn't try it, can't really say anything bad about it because they don't know.
Avatar n tn I need help and I was wondering if anyone out there had a similar experience or can help me understand what may be going on with me. I had my last AF around 2/22 and stopped the Nuvaring, but I have been on birth control for many years (pills and then the Nuvaring for the past couple years). I was told that it would take 1-3 months to ovulate, but then I started to feel like I could be pregnant.
Avatar f tn A couple years ago, I was on the Ortho-Evra patch. After a warning from the FDA about high hormone levels with the patch, my doctor pulled me off it. My body responded by making my hair fall out in large amounts (this happened w/Depo too). I took a year or so off of any BCP and I felt GREAT. My head was clear, I was upbeat and sharp-thinking. Since going back on the BCP due to the endo, I just feel dull. I've read about similar side-effects, worse with other pills.
1755625 tn?1421451237 Most women with MS will go into a remission while pregnant due to the changes in their bodies hormone levels. I assume from reading your post that nuvaring works by changing your hormones so your body thinks you are pregnant which is why you had episodes upon removal. This would correspond to the flares women will have after giving birth.
Avatar f tn It would be better to take it at exactly 5 each day to keep the hormone levels more or less steady. If you take it half an hour to an hour late, it's not going to kill you, but it is better to take it at the same time daily as the insert attached to each pack tells you to do. You should still be protected from that incident, but I would suggest setting a cell phone alarm and keeping your pills with you so you can make sure you don't forget.
5121963 tn?1363908857 But you have to try anything that might work better for you if what you're currently on doesn't do enough. It could depend on your body's hormone levels and how your body reacts to things. For example, I've never had a yeast infection (that I know of or that has been diagnosed), and I've only ever had UTIs when sexually active during monogamous relationships. Good luck!
128449 tn?1192829269 After a rough 2 weeks (finding out about pregnancy/then m/c) my hcg levels are back to 0. I NEED a bc method that will work since i am now TERRIFIED of getting pregnant again right away. Condoms are uncomfortable - even with lubricant...and i just can't remember to take the pill (hence the pregnancy last time). Do any of you have suggestions? I think that the sponge or diaphram seem impractical.
1851457 tn?1321238641 even request a blood test to check your hormone levels to confirm if you r or r not ... then you will know weither to start back on your BC or not... but good luck!
Avatar f tn My 27 yr old daughter had similar surgeries over the last year or so and has expressed these same desperate emotions to me many times now and it just hit us both that it is her hormones. She just thought she was severely depressed. She is going to the doctor in Dec when her insurance kicks in, but in the mean time, what are some natural remedies that may help? She is feeling so desperate and it is breaking my heart.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 24 years old and have 2 kids. A 4 year old and a 2 year old. My menstrual cycles were always normal before having children and even still normal after having my first child. But since having my second child two years ago I have been bleeding almost non stop! (I had two c-sections) I have tried so many different birth controls to try to make it stop, non of which have worked. The one that helped the most was NuvaRing however it's $50 a month to fill!
1287128 tn?1331138138 I went to the doctor last month who gave me a script for nuvaring which I hate hormonal bc so I haven't started taking it. I did have a miscarriage in november but I was so so early along that they couldn't even get a positive urine test they got an early positive via blood then two days later I mc. My hcg levels immediately went back to normal so my doctor said she doesn't think thats what has caused all this. If anyone has an opinion or similar experience I'd b very appreciative! Xx thanks!!
639543 tn?1297031234 I think they want your body's natural hormone levels to get back to normal first, which can usually take 6 weeks. And so your doctor will mention BC options at your post-partum visit.
Avatar f tn I have been on the Nuvaring for about 3 years now. I am being referred to an endocrinologist or a gynecologist depending on who I can get in with sooner (may be a few months).I am really worried about my chances of kids in the future, and that is what my question is about. What are my chances of being infertile, and will there be something I can do about it? And I think I may have a goiter in my thyroid even though the blood work was neg...
Avatar f tn Yea, taking them at different times each day is almost like not taking them at all because then your hormone levels will fluctuate since the pill is not keeping them stable and you don't want that. If you are very forgetful, please make a doctor's appointment and look into other options for birth control. You can try using the birth control patch, the implant, the depo shot, etc all of which are not taken daily and you won't have to remember all the time.
319653 tn?1200349942 If your periods are irregular, the first step is to control your thyroid hormone levels, and then if your periods still are not regular use fertilit drugs to ovulate. If that is the case, I would recommend seeing an infertility subspecialist. After RAI, it is usually pretty straightforward to get your TSH normal with thyroid replacement.
Avatar m tn I'm tired of not knowing what's going on. I feel something is wrong and my hormone levels are abnormal due to a specific cause that the doctor isn't finding.
Avatar f tn it was amazing, because you could just insert it and then basically forget about it until it's time to be removed. Also, it has lower hormone levels than normal birth control pills. I would definitely reccomend it.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to think. I've heard of a lot of women not being able to have a successful pg. after depo. I had 2 healthy pg's, then I was on depo for 2 months and have not been able to have a successful pg. since. My dr. says that depo has nothing to do with it, but I don't know....I also have a autoimmune disorder but, thats something that makes me wonder....
911624 tn?1242844609 Should I call and tell them what's going on or is this normal. She gave me the nuvaring to put in as my period was ending and I forgot cause I have never taken birth control. So I was waiting on my next cycle to use it. However, I'm not sure when it will start or if this spotting IS my period and I just don't know it??? 2 weeks seems too long??? Anyone help??? Have I always had PCOS and noone ever told me??
Avatar f tn 3lbs here 5lbs there,and the light jog that u do is perfectly fine, and the thing about it all is that I only take 850mg once a day. make sure all of your other hormone levels are normal, because i also have underactive thyroid so my doc ran tests on everything to rule out other things that could be causing me to gain weight.
