NUVARING: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “Although it did it’s job by never getting me pregnant, I had many infections while using the NuvaRing. Our vaginas aren’t made to have something artificial sitting in it at all times, so I think it irritated me. Having regular vaginal infections was not fun and definitely put a damper on my sex life. With that being said, I think I am very sensitive. My body seems to reject anything foreign, even ear piercings. So if this seems like a good option for you, I would definitely try it and see how your body responds.”

For Birth Control “Terrible. I had it in for two days and was so moody- I was irritable with my boyfriend and all my coworkers and I’m usually a very happy person. I decided to switch from the pill to the nuva ring because I’m not good at taking my pill on time but I could not deal with the way it was making me feel. I know that my body needed time to get used to the hormones but I couldn’t take it.”

For Birth Control “Worst experience of my life. Ended my relationship with my boyfriend and caused major family issues that I don’t know how to fix. My anger was like a car without brakes. I felt violent and enraged from about 3 days in, and had terrible acne and insomnia. I had a proper psychotic episode that lasted almost two months. I can’t warn against it strongly enough. I would have ended up in prison if I used it longer.”

For Birth Control “I’ve been on the nuvaring for about six months now and the first three months was miserable. My whole face had broke out in cystic acne, which I’ve never had before. It was very stressful getting rid of certain foods that I thought caused my breakout but after my face cleared up I realized it was just my body getting used to the birth control. I don’t notice any signs of depression but I have real bad anxiety that I’ve never had before. Also, my boyfriend and I get into these little arguments over NOTHING! Right when he starts to raise his voice at me I just break down crying for no reason. I haven’t gotten pregnant on this and it has never fallen out for me, however, I’m definitely going to consider switching to an IUD.”

For Birth Control “This was horrible I bled the entire time and had cramps from it being inside of me. Once I took it out I felt better. Everything was a lot better never again everyone’s body and is different but use at your own risk”

For Birth Control “Nuvaring was very easy to insert and never fell out. BUT I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE DEPRESSED IN MY LIFE. I was already a little depressed due to extra stress and life events but I’ve never been suicidal. It also took away my sex drive within the first day. I have friends who love it, but it’s not for me. It also made my panic attacks more intense and more frequent and longer in duration. Took it out after only 2 weeks.”
