Reactions with Nuvaring?

I have tried most of the pills and the patch (it's been a few years) before giving up on all hormonal contraceptives. Even the patch and low-dose pills make me a raving bi-polar loon. I don't know WHY I have such a reaction....but my Dr. seems to think I would be able to use Nuvaring and not be a raging witch to my family. Has anyone used/had reactions to this form of contraception? We aren't planning on having another for a few years and I really don't want to have an oopsy.

  • Mine like literally feel out one day. My boyfriend at the time found it in his bed and asked if it was a braclet of some sort. He was real loser to so thank god I didn't get pregnant from the night before. Once I got my period I dumped him and got to my doctor and got put back on the pill.

  • I was on the nuvaring for YEARS and LOVED it! Then I went off to have my daughter and went back on and was very happy with it again! It was very convenient and easy. You put it in for 3 weeks, take it out for a week and then put a new one in... its really a no brainer way to remember your BC. It is effective for up to 2 hours out so if your partner were to feel it, you can take it out during sex without losing the effectiveness.

  • I used nuvaring for almost 4 years and loved it. I loved not having to worry about it every day and i never ever had a problem with it falling out. we got preg 3 months after i took it out and everything is going lovely. after this baby is born it will be right back on nuvaring for me!
