I got pregnant the month I stopped using it. I was on it for 2.5-3 years before then.



I loved it, I had no side effects. I'd take it out on a Sunday, got my period tuesday afternoon, then it was kind of heavy on Wednesday, over on Thursday.



I'd love to go back on it, but I'm breastfeeding right now.

I got pregnant while using it twice. It was the first BC I used starting when I was 17. I got pregnant on it when I was 19 and miscarried. I switched to the pill. After 2 more miscarriages I had my son 16 months ago and went on the ring again. I got pregnant again when my son was 4 months old and now I have a 3 month old. So....yeah. I used it correctly. I just apparently have bad luck in the BC department. Thus the reason I want my tubes tied and DH to get a vasectomy. Double coverage.

Loved the Nuva Ring! I was on it for awhile before and after my son; I was down to a 4day very light period, no side effects, it was amazing.



Now the downside. I got pregnant both times while using the Nuva Ring. I'm not sure if I took some meds that messed with it, or if I'm just the lucky one lol...but yeah. Besides that...I loved it and I would 1000000% recommend it to my friends etc. (I think I was just a user error fluke)

Jesus. I didn't even have a pregnancy scare while on it. were you girls using it 3 weeks on, one week off, or were you skipping your period with it?!

I was on it consistently for almost 3 years.

Doctor put me on it yesterday. I haven't got to start it yet, I have to wait until my ultrasound next week. He said I could use if for 4 weeks change it the next week and not have a period.

What about using it for 4 weeks and changing it the next week and not having a period. He said I could do that.

I think I skipped my period twice with it. I didn't like not getting a period, scared the crap out of me lol (which is one of the MANY reasons i got rid of mirena, and said no to the depo shot). I don't see how it's healthy to not get a period for extended periods of time, but that's just my opinion.

I agree with your opinion. I was too afraid to do that I prefered to know for sure at that time that i was not expecting
