    Women health issues (The public version)

    I couldn't figure out a section to put this. Anywho...
    Anyone have any experience with the Nuvaring and any side effects?
    Thanks.

    Eh I figure post your questions here. Just try to use words like vajajay or cookie. :P

    Re: Women health issues (The public version)

    I don't know about the ring because I can't take "combination contraceptive pills" (my translator website haven't got too wide range of vocabulary in this kind of matters ). I mean pills that have both estrogen and progesterone. That's because my grandma has died to thrombosis AND I have had aural migraine. So I take minipills, which have only progesterone and they haven't made contraceptive rings which only had progesterone.. But i wish that would be an option, because it sucks to take a pill everyday. (of course I could take a two-years-lasting progesterone capsule to my arm.... but I don't like the idea. )

    I'm on the pill so I honestly haven't a clue.. actually I had to good the nuvaring to find out what it was!! this is what the internet says on the subject of side effects

    The common side effects reported by NuvaRing® users are:

    ■Vaginal infections and irritation
    ■Vaginal secretion
    ■Headache
    ■Weight gain
    ■Nausea
    In addition to the risks and side effects listed above, users of combination hormonal birth control methods have reported the following side effects:

    ■Vomiting
    ■Change in appetite
    ■Abdominal cramps and bloating
    ■Breast tenderness or enlargement
    ■Irregular vaginal bleeding or spotting
    ■Changes in menstrual cycle
    ■Temporary infertility after treatment
    ■Fluid retention (edema)
    ■Spotty darkening of the skin, particularly on the face
    ■Rash
    ■Weight changes
    ■Depression
    ■Intolerance to contact lenses
    ■Nervousness
    ■Dizziness
    ■Loss of scalp hair
    but this is all stuff you've probably already found yourself.. to be honest it sounds uncomfortable to me :P

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    I have only had one person mention the Nuvaring to me, and it was a story about an allergic reaction, so it's not pleasant. Unfortunately, I have nothing useful :-X

    Most birth control that has a high androgen factor (e.g., male hormones) has this potential side effect. I was on Lo-Ovral for years & it started giving me male pattern baldness... so no more Lo-Ovral.

    good gods.

    All the more reason for me never to use birth control (which I don't, nor have ever even tried)

    Yeah, but the point is that if you get side effects you change the pills, not try to suffer the side effects. :P Because it really depends on the person and the pill mark if you're getting the side effects or not and also if they have both estrogen and progesterone or just the second one. Same hormone but different pills and you might react compeletely differently. I've changed mine once because the previous ones made me grouchy.

    Also one point in NuvaRing is that because it's changed once a month, the amount of hormones stay more stable and because of that you're supposed to get less side effects than with pills taken once per day. (Btw, i've heard two of my friends praise it and that's why I would have liked to test something similar)
