  • He may have a yeast infection, or at least be carrying the yeast without any symptoms and passing it back to you. If you have one, he needs to be treated as well, and most likely, you will stop getting them every other week.

    Aside from that, I too am on the Nuva Ring, but i have not had a yeast infection since I was 18.

  • When I was on the NuvaRing I had the same thing. I had never had a yeast infection before. It was before I was pregnant and I wasnt even really having sex at that point - but I kept just having awful yeast infections. I told my gyno about it and she said that the NuvaRing does not cause infections... from my experience I really think that it does.
