Can the Nuva Ring cause REALLY bad boils?

I have only had it in for 1 week yesterday and Friday morning when I awoke I had this HUGE boil inside my nostril? It is so swollen and very red, It will not pop and hurts so bad. I have never had one before. If this is whats in store for me I don't think I like this birth control method!

  • I've been on it for almost a year and never had that happen. It just sounds like a coincidence to me.

  • Nuva ring gave me a huge hard knot on my head. I thought I was growing a horn-- seriously. I took it out, got sort of sick from it, but the "horn" went away in about 2 weeks.
