  • I got mine put in on March 24th. I'm STILL bleeding. Not spotting but bleeding. I made a dr appointment for May 4th to have it checked. I HATE the fact that I'm still bleeding and may end up having it taken out.

  • One of my friends (who's on here actually) is having trouble with hers- uncomfortable cramping and bleeding. She made an appointment and they told her she can bleed for up to six months! I can't believe that, but I guess that's how it works. Other friends I've asked about it say it's fine once you get past those first few months of your body regulating, which is any birth control, really. As far as effectiveness, I haven't heard of any problems with it!

  • I had the Mirena and hated it! I had bleeding for 7 MONTHS after I had my son it didnt ever stop so I had my doctor take it out! I wouldn't get that thing again if my life depended on it! Save your self and just take the pill or get the Nuva Ring!

  • I'm not sure if they've straightened up or not but the Nuva Ring was recalled because it caused the same problems as the patch (brain aneurisms and such). As far as I know the OBGYN office my MIL works at still doesn't prescribe them.

  • im looking into getting it to, i just had my baby four weeks ago... i was reading alot of stuff about it and it kinda makes me nervous but all you can really do is go off your own experience, which im doing... if you dont like it, than it can be taken out.... good luck...

    and FYI - DO NOT i mean DO NOT go on nuva ring... i got pregnant while on nuva ring after using it for SIX MONTHS and using condoms until i KNEW it was affective... also i know three other girls who got pregnant on it as well while using it religiously .... i mean like i said, its all your experience but i HIGHLY do NOT recommend nuva ring. IMO
