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. 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

Same: Nuvaring is the same as a birth control pills except it is absorbed transvaginally rather than thru the stomach.

Discuss with your doctor what those side effects are. ...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?

No and yes: No, the therapeutic amount of blood stream hormones to suppress the pituitary are the same for the pill and the Nuva ring. 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

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
