Questions about Nuvaring
Hi everyone...I too am going to be starting the Nuvaring. I took my last Orthotricycline lo Thursday June 1st (I never did the Sunday start...I would start active pills on a Friday, last one Thursday, and get my period M-F)I was on that for about 2 or 3 years, but have been on OCPs since I was 23 and I am now 34.

The reason for switching to Nuvaring is I seem to be having heavier days during my periods each month, and I am having some minor breakthrough bleeding. My Gynecologist thinks that the cholesterol lowering over the counter drug I am taking, Cholestene, is interfering with how the pill is being absorbed in the GI tract. I didn't notice the problem periods while on Ortho lo until after starting Cholestene about 3-4 months ago.

I have a few questions before starting Nuvaring. My doctor told me to refridgerate it until use so that it does not lose its potency until I am ready to insert it. Is this necessary? Since I am took my last active pill this past Thursday, would I then insert Nuvaring next Thursday even though I used to start the active pills for the next month on a Friday? I probably have a million more questions about it, but can't think of any more at the moment. Thanks!

I used the Nuvaring for a year. It was great and af didnt exsist much at all. I didnt refrgerate it at all. The pharmacist told me that as long as it wasnt in extreme tempatures it would be fine.

Good Luck.
