  • I loved the Nuvaring, too. I have too much going on to remember pills everyday! My drs comment when I asked him about sex was "80% of guys won't feel it at all, the other 20% will be so happy to be where they are they won't care!" He's pretty funny! My dh said he could feel it, but it's soft and flexible - it didn't hurt him at all. It did occasionally come out during sex, I would just put it back in - no need to clean it, it was just fluids from me and dh. I never experienced any infections - not sure why you would.

  • I used to use it and I really liked it. If you bring it home before you need to use it, it needs to be refridgerated. So sometimes it's kinda cold when you put it in. If you can feel it then excuse yourself and adjust it. That should rarely happen though. Sometimes it can fall out during sex but the meds will still be in you so don't worry, just clean and put it back in when you are done.

  • When I was on BC, NuvaRing was my favorite. I loved it. It made my period regular, I could set a watch to it. When I took it out, 3 days later it would arrive. I miss that. I had to stop using it b/c my doc felt it was the cause of my migraines. I didn't experience any major side effects, compared to any other BC. The thing I miss the most is not having to take a pill everyday.

  • I loved the NuvaRing. It was preferred choice of BC. I'm the type to forget about pills, and didn't like the patch that much. Too bad my insurance doesn't cover it. I never took it out either, within those 3 weeks. DH said he never felt it.

  • gave my friend migraines

    i'm not savvy to strange items in my vagina- so i've never used it.

    snappy commercial though.

  • I love the nuva ring, I never had any problems other than it sometimes hurt to put it in and take it out, but other than that I loved it. I always knew exactly when I would start my period
