Dr. PAUL EUN answered:

What are some of the side effects of nuvaring?

Perhaps not

Estrogen
As with birth control pills, some women may not have the withdrawal bleeding on occasion. This is due to the fact that NuvaRing contains both estrogen and progestin. 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.

No

Contraception
The side effects are similar to any low dose ethinyl estradiol birth control pill and are probably less with NuvaRing.

I want to take the nuvaring out, I had intercourse 4 days ago. Is it safe to take it out now? Reason: side effects too much?

Contact your GYN doc

Menstrual_period
Nuva ring is inserted into the vagina for a three-week period and then removed for one week, during which the user will experience a menstrual period. I would suggest that you wait for the date it is due to be removed or you may have failure of contraception. talk to your GYN if you have side effects and use barriers like condoms or OC Pills

I put Nuvaring in after my period & had it in for 3 days but had serious side effects & took it out. Now,about 4 days later I am bleeding..serious?

No

Bleeding
Nuvaring is a hormone delivery system and taking it out will cause your hormones to drop. Any time hormones drop, you may bleed
