Estrogen makes the uterine lining grow whereas the progestin makes it thinner. Progestin always dominates so most women will experience lighter periods. Sometimes the lining becomes so thin that no withdrawal bleeding occurs. ...Read more

I want to try nuvaring, I've been on other birth control and had bad side effects. What are the side effects of nuvaring?

Same: Nuvaring is the same as a birth control pills except it is absorbed transvaginally rather than thru the stomach. Because of that difference, you may have less nausea and more consistent blood levels of the drug. If you had 'bad side effects' with the pill, I suspect you will have the same with the Nuvaring. Discuss with your doctor what those side effects are. ...Read more
