Just started nuvaring for Endo. I've been bleeding 14 so heavy going through pads and tampons, what's wrong?

Menorrhagia: The Nuvaring can help reduce the duration and the heaviness of your periods but it can take some time before it has its effect. If bleeding >2pads/hr, go to the hospital for evaluation.
