Nuvaring reviews

Common Questions and Answers about Nuvaring reviews


Avatar n tn Hello. I have been on Nuvaring for several years. The last month I was on it, I accidentally left the ring in one week longer than the 3 week period. I went ring-free for a week, and then when I normally insert a new ring, I switched to Yaz. I've read that the ring would have been effective still since it was only one week extra, but my real question concerns whether the Yaz is effective the first week after beginning it.
Avatar m tn I changed birth control in the last month from Nuvaring (which i believed to be the cause of my vaginal irritation) to the OrthoEvra Patch. I have been attributing my lack of sex drive to our lack of privacy, as we don't see each other often, but I'm not sure if that's just my way of masking my problems. Please help, I'm extremely distressed. Thank you.
1467678 tn?1370945132 i had problems with acne and hairiness hence different pills, and i experienced depression and moodiness on different pills. Nuvaring ( I got continuous uti infections from having this inside me) Implanon- no sex drive at all ( relationship issues due to that) Depo provera injection worked for me was happy with this but I'm not sure its suitable to my above conditions.
Avatar f tn What I would like to know is whether the nuva ring is more likely to cause negative emotional side effects than the pill is. I have heard mixed reviews, some people emotionally crash on it and others notice nothing; is this just something I am going to have to buckle down and test for a month? If so, how do I monitor my own side effects to decide if it is having a negative effect on me?
Avatar f tn I'm thinking IUD Mirena since we have the two we always said 2 would be it but my dr doesn't do tubals on people my age (23) as she says if I decide to have a 3rd the reversal isn't usually covered by insurance and is pretty pricey and if the father and I split up and I decide to start a family with someone else then same problem. Only problem is I've heard 50/50 reviews on Mirena and IUD's in general that I just don't know yet what's going to be the best option for me.
Avatar f tn I read drug reviews of it last night and most said it's very effective. You have to get that two-pill kick start or it will take forever to kick in, and after that take it on the 6 hour mark even if you're not in pain yet. Once the pain starts, taking just one pill takes 60-90 minutes to kick in. It does work, though. Go to this link if interested in the reviews. Note that they are hard to find...
1399033 tn?1449591379 I'm going back on the Nuvaring. When your period starts you insert it for three weeks then remove. And repeat. Very easy, it's never came out on its own, and I'm forgetful when it comes to taking pills.
Avatar f tn To be cautious, I have never been on pills or any other systematic hormone-related contraception (e.g. Nuvaring, patch, shots etc). It seems my best bet would be IUD. I read a lot of archives on Mirena and ParaGard here and else where. I cannot decide which one to take. Most Mirena users are happy with it. Some reported weight gain and mood change. In addition, very few women were diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after they had Mirena inserted.
Avatar f tn I took a Equate knock off of the First Response this morning and set it to the side, I went back and checked on it and there was a very faint blue line this was before the 2 min window. So I was like no way I have heard some mixed reviews on these tests that they give false positives.
Avatar n tn hey monkeyflower -- I've heard various mixed reviews on that - my doc says most kinds of BCP & antibiotics don't mix, and I've heard the contrary as well..
1663813 tn?1303862095 Last month I decided I wanted to try to conceive with my husband. I was on birth control for about 9 months (Nuvaring). I stopped taking birth control in January. I have a 9 year old son. So here are the events. Last menstrual Cycle was March 27th. I have a 31-32 cycle. I ovulated on the 14th. I had sex with my hubby on the 2nd, 7th. I had some bleeding on the 8th that lasted for 2 days. I have no idea what that was about. never happened before. We had sex again in the 14th and the 16th.
Avatar n tn I heard that the nuvaring birth control helps alot with women who are prone to yeast infection... I have been using it for about 3 years and it does help however I was married for the most part of that and maybe only got one or two but i mostly contributed that to receiving oral after my husband drank alot of beer...
Avatar n tn I AM JUST WONDERING IF ANY OTHER WOMEN OUT THERE HAS HAD HEAVY/PAINFUL PERIODS AND IF THEY HAD THIS PROCEDURE DONE TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. I have tried the nuvaring, and the pill to combat this problem, to no avail. Any thoughts or advice on this issue would greatly be appreciated! GOD BLESS!
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 // the second one is a lil cheaper... i haven't taken the femanol in a while so i can't recall how it was with the after sex odor... but i thought i'd put my thoughts in!
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 Hi, I'm a 22-year-old female so this may help women...2 months ago I started using Nuvaring (and IUD for of birth control), during that time I've had two UTIs and pain on my right side (under my ribs and lower back) and just recently found out that it's most likely due to my birth control. I go to my family doctor tomorrow (I'm overly paranoid when I don't feel well) but I took the ring out 2 days ago, and already feel somewhat better.
