Nuva Ring for Birth Control
So I have used the nuva ring for birth control (well besides before Marley) I used it for years before. I never had any issues with spotting or starting my period earlier. Has anyone else used NR and had these problems?

When I used nuva right I was on it for about four months it would be time to take it out and I wouldn't start my cycle so my doctor told me to put it back in and i would then my cycle would start and last about 5 days it happened every month then when i finally stopped using it in june my period didn't show for two months.. and i've had the hardest time getting pregnant and having it stick. They actually had a lawsuit out against them a few years ago about nuva right and girls getting pregnant after coming off it and having a miscarriage something about the hormones in it.

I used nuva ring because I had to be on bc to help my endometriosis. I used it after being on depo for many years and I actually really liked it. I cannot take bc pills cause they all made me sick and Nuva Ring was highly recommended by my dr. I was on it for about 6 months til I could ttc again.

I actually talked to my doc and you take it out for 7 days and put it back in 7 days later even if you are spotting or bleeding. I have never had any problems with this birth control and it is the only one that doesn't cause me to gain a ton of weight. Thank you ladies.

I was on it for years and loved it. I never had problems with my period, put it in for 3 weeks, out for a week and then put a new one back in. I never gained any weight with it, etc. But after my last baby I wanted to use it again and for some reason I kept getting vaginal infections :S Never had that problem before. But when I did use it I loved it!
