Not similar. The NuvaRing is comparable to the birth control pill, it contains estrogen and pregesterone and is intended to provide contraception by suppressing the ovaries, it usually provides good cycle contro as well - it is placed in the vagina by the user. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is more like the depo-provera shot. Mirena (levonorgestrel) is a Progesterone only contraceptive that is placed by a physician inside the uterus.
IUD. Mirena (levonorgestrel) is a hormone coated intra-uterine device; NuvaRing is a hormone impregnated flexible ring that you insert into the upper part of your vagina, and change once a month. Mirena (levonorgestrel), once placed, provides contraception for 5 years, the NuvaRing for a month at a time.
I got my mirena (levonorgestrel) out a nonth ago and switched that day to nuvaring. When should I start bleeding again? Breakthrough hasn't started, none after removal
1-2 months. Mirena (levonorgestrel) inhibits the growth inside the uterus and it takes a little time to grow back. With the NuvaRing you will probable have a cycle by the time you remove the second one. That assumes you use it cyclic, 3 weeks in 1 week out. If you immed. Started using continuous, 4 weeks in and immed. Switch with a new one, you may not have a cycle.
I used Mirena (levonorgestrel) from 11/18- 5/5 a week before the removal I was put on Nuvaring I used it for a week & now I want a baby how long until we conceive?
Right away. Using the Nuva Ring does not prolong your chances of becoming pregnant. It might take a cycle or two, but you should be able to conceive (chances with any cycle are around 20-25%) next cycle. The only birth control that prolongs infertility is the Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. All the others don't prolong infertility.
Got the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud taken out then put nuvaring in next day. Bled a little. Is that blood from the removal or a light period?
Iud removal. It is not uncommon to have light bleeding after an IUD removal.
