What are some of the side effects of nuvaring?

Perhaps not: 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.

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

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: 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. ...Read more

With Nuvaring, do less hormones circulate through the bloodstream than with BC pills? Does this make it a safer alternative with fewer side effects?

With Nuvaring, do less hormones circulate through the bloodstream than with BC pills? Does this make it a safer alternative with fewer side effects?

However, since the Nuva ring is placed and absorbed vaginally, a lesser amount of hormone is need to achieve the therapeutic blood levels. The oral pill has more inert ingredients to be dissolved by the stomach acid before the active hormones are absorbed. ...Read more

How do the NuvaRing and birth control patch compare to the pill in terms of safety risks and side effects?

How do the NuvaRing and birth control patch compare to the pill in terms of safety risks and side effects?

Birth control: safe: The NuvaRing and patch depend on creating a poor environment for a fertilized egg to implant in the womb. On occasions, both methods may fail. Both are "safe" but do not compare in efficacy to the low dose birth control pill taken properly in effectiveness. There are potentially fewer "side effects " with the NuvaRing and patch, however, excluding the failure rate for preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Nuva-ring: this is not because you left your nuva ring in to long. the only problem leaving it in too long, is it has a reduced estrogen/progesterone contact, and thus risk for pregnancy is higher. i feel something else is occurring in your body causing fatigue, and pain. Get evaluated by your PCP. I would suggest base line labs first, CBC and BMP. ...Read more
