Nuvaring Birth Control Side Effects
Calendar Method. The calendar (rhythm method) is considered the least reliable of fertility awareness methods. Women who have very irregular periods may have even less success with this method. In the calendar method, the woman first keeps a record of her menstrual periods for about 6 - 12 months.

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.

Discuss with your doctor what those side effects are. ...Read more

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.

There are potentially fewer "side effects " with the NuvaRing and patch, however, excluding the failure rate for preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Can Nuvaring be used to effectively treat acne or does the birth control need to be in pill form because of differences in doses, etc.?
No.: Nuvaring is not intended to be used as an acne treatment, and is not approved for that use. It can, as a side effect, make acne better, or worse. I've had patients tell me that their acne improved while using the Nuvaring, and others have said that their acne was worse than ever while using it. So it's totally unpredictable. Rather than roll the dice, see a dermatologist for a proper acne regimen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
