Okay, ladies, I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on this.
My son is 4 months old, and I just started the Nuvaring. My doctor told me that it is the next best thing to the Minipill (I am awful with remembering to take pills so I decided to try the ring first). I talked to my doctor about all the pros and cons with the ring, especially because I am exclusively breastfeeding. He told me that the estrogen in the ring will not affect my son in any way because the amount that gets into my milk is so minute that it won't do anything. He also told me to keep an eye on my production and that if it is drastically lowered I'd have to stop. I've only been on it two days and so far so good.
I know that the warning labels tell you not to use it while breastfeeding, but my doctor said it was fine. Are there any other BFing moms on the ring? I'd love to hear from you. I refuse to believe that everyone's experience with the ring is negative.
