Re: Nuva Ring

Thanks, ladies! My GYN gave me a 3 months worth of samples, so I can try it before she writes the script.

I had a similar response to it. It was the first thing I tried after weaning DS. My moods we all over the place, and worse than when I was prego. I felt awful. It would fall out, or nearly when I ovulated, and got to the point where i'd take it out for DTD (3 hour window if I remember right) I tried it for 3 months before switching to Yaz. Also hated Yaz, decided hormonal bc was not for us and went to condoms.

It worked well for friends that used it, and there are a lot of ladies here that obviously liked it. My body just doesnt do well with hormonal bc. I did like the ease of it, and it was comfortable.

I liked it just fine, but stopped because I'm apparently still too forgetful for even the Nuva Ring. I kept forgetting to switch on time and all that. But anywho, I always took mine out during sex. The packaging says something about being able to remove it for up to 3 hours, I think. So yeah, I just took it out and then put it back afterwards.

I use it and do get headaches at the end of my three weeks and when I put one back in. Usually I can control them with an aleve but sometimes they are kinda rough. Other than that I love it and have been using it for just under 5 years. Never fallen out.
