Have you used the birth control Nuva Ring?

I just started on the Nuva Ring and want to know what others who have used it thought. Did you like it? Did you get pregnant with it in? Any Problems?

  • I used it years ago and I liked it. No problems at all.

  • I had it a couple of years ago as well. I got a lot of headaches, which I'm not sure were related. I had read an article about a woman who had a brain aneurism and died because of the hormones in the pill. I guess I got pretty freaked out. Now, I have a plastic IUD which does not affect you systemically. I haven't had a period at all. Other than the headaches and paranoia I had no problems . . no extra cramps or bleeding. Actually, my periods were quite light on the ring . . . like 2 days.

  • *when I said the pill . . I meant her birth control pill, that's why the headaches scared me.
