It's unlikely that the NuvaRing specifically would cause costipation but if someone were susceptible, it could contribute. The fact that it is in the vagina and above the rectum would not lead to constipation. ...Read more

I hava a problem of constipation. I go to the bathroom twice a week. What should I do?

Water, diet, doctor: Be sure you are properly hydrated - drink between between 1-2 liters of clean water a day. Some foods are helpful - prunes, other fruits and veggies too.

See a doctor if this is not enough. ...Read more

The: The good news is that you have a doctor's apointment. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the sooner treatment can be initiated. It sounds like you are dealing with acid reflux disease; the blood in your stool can be due to hemorrhoids (external or internal) and/or a bleeding ulcer, and can be a sign of colon cancer. You will likely need a test of your upper and lower GI tract (endoscopy and colonoscopy). After a thorough history of your problem, and physical, diagnostic tests can be ordered.
Try not to worry. Like I stated, it is good that you are now under a doctor's care.
Best of luck. ...Read more
