  • Never used that before. I've thought about it though. My cousin used to be on that. Here's a bump for ya.

  • I used nuvaring after I had my DD...I was only on it for about 4 months but I did have the same problem. I would take it out and not start my period for a few days afterward and then it would be cut short (not complaining about it being cut short) I did talk to my OB about it at one of my checkups and she said that it takes quite a while for your body to adjust. Especially since I had not been on any type of B/C for about 3 years prior. If you are concerned you should give your gyn a call. Nuvaring is effective for a certain amount of time after you take it out as well so that may be causing some of the delay. I hope everything works out for you and that this give you a little peace of mind

  • I used it and loved it! I never went a week without though - my dr told me it was fine to put a new one in after 3 weeks and just not have my period which is what I did. It was great!
