  • I don't know how you feel about pill alternatives, but I am on the Nuva Ring, it constantly releases a low dose estrogen into your system, I did not gain any weight, have had no crazy mood swings, my periods have been lighter with no cramping at all. You put it in, leave it for 3 weeks, then take it out for a week so you have your period, then put a new one in (into your vagina)

  • Oh, and no its not 100% effective, nothing is besides abstinence. But it is just as effective as the pill.

  • I am using Yasmin pills, and so far have not been gaining any weight, however i do notice some spots/pigmentation on my face, wonder this is the side effects of the pills? if you are looking for an answer, you can try visiting this website http://www.medicationreview.net/ they provide useful information on absolutely all health-related problems.
