HI!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that I have had excellent success with the Nuva ring.  Because it is absorbed vaginally and does not pass through the stomach, it has fewer side effects than birth control pills.  There is typically not much weight gain--maybe 3-5 lbs of water weight + whatever the patient overeats and under-exercises.  The only two complaints that I have had are that it falls out sometimes, and there can be some vaginal discharge associated with it.
Hope this is helpful!

I had it and didn't like it. It kept slipping out. And it was very uncomfortable.

I have been on the nuvaring for just under a year. I love it because u never have to remember to take a pill. And yes u keep it in all the time for 3 weeks then take it out n toss it n u are ring free for 1 week then u put in a new one. I've had no weight gain. That all depends on your diet ad exercise. The only thing is that I do get the vaginal discharge which is making me want to switch. Idk if that is a symptom every girl gets or what. If not your gonna love it. Btw...it has NEVER fallen out and it is so comfortable you won't ever know its there
