Can nuvaring cause sensitivity of inner or outer labias? Can a UTI cause it? Got a UTI after starting it, so I want to find out which is the culprit.

In brief: Difficult to know

Vaginal itching and irritation have been reported, as has vaginal infection as potential side-effects, but this does not exclude other possible sources for this.
Should not be causing uti, but the position of the ring could potentially place pressure on the urethra, causing a transient obstruction, which may lead to secondary uti. Impossible to tell whether the chicken preceded the egg. See doc.
