Birth Control :: Nuvaring Vs. Levora Pill? : Less Emotional Symptoms?

Apr 15, 2014

I was taking Levora birth control and increasingly had mood swings, depression, etc. the longer I took it. After four months I decided I am just not the same person on it and my symptoms are very evident to those around me (not to mention the increased acne and water weight!) My doctor suggested the NuvaRing as it is a different way that hormones are released into your body. Has anyone struggled with emotional and mental symptoms on the pill and switched to NuvaRing and had success?

Birth Control :: Pill Makes Me Psycho And Nuvaring Kills My Sex Drive

Almost two years ago, I started taking the pill (Junel FE1/120, or something like that). At first it was everything I wanted.

Every month on the first day of my period, I would get really sick. I would get nauseous and dizzy and everything hurt so badly that I couldn't get out of bed most months. Junel fixed that. Those problems went away immediately.

Then came new problems. Junel made me crazy. My blood pressure and heart rate were always really high and I would have panic attacks at little to no provocation. I couldn't function. I cried all the time, and I got really depressed. I started doing really poorly in school and couldn't handle daily life.

Last June, I switched over to Nuvaring. Craziness gone! But so is my libido. I never want to have sex anymore, and what's the fun of being on BC if you never are in the mood? All I've gained from Nuvaring is 30 lbs.

Does anyone know of any better options that won't make me crazy, but might not kill my sex drive?

Birth Control :: Ovulation And Birth Control Pill, Still New To Taking Pill

I consider myself to still be new to taking the pill as a form of birth control. Just when I think I have it figured out, something new would happen which would make me doubt it's effectiveness.

I am currently using Chateal, which contains 21 active pills and 7 placebo pills. After 6 months of taking it as directed, I assume my body should be used to the side effects. I would get nausea from taking it so I switched to taking it at night. I have been taking it that way for 3 months now.

But I have noticed since first started taking it, I would get severe cramps and backaches during the second week of the pack for a few days. I assumed I was ovulating while on the pill because I noticed my cervical mucus changes throughout the month. My understanding though is the pill is to prevent ovulation thus preventing pregnancy.

Can you ovulate while on the pill? Is my birth control pill type too low of a dose for me? Could it be something else?

Birth Control :: FromCombined (Gederal) Pill To The Mini (Cerelle) Pill?

I have been on the combined pill (Gederal) for a couple of years now but my doctor wants to change me to the Mini Pill (Cerelle). My Combined pill is perfect so i don't want to change. I mentioned that i had one migraine with visual disturbance and she explained to me that even one of these migraines is a reason to come off the combined pill. The combined Pill regulated my periods but she explained that this mini pill is now going to make me irregular.

Birth Control : Nuvaring - Uncomfortable And Getting Removed

I tried out the nuvaring AMD I want to say I kept it in for about a week. I started the day after my period completely stopped. Before I had started this birth control I showed signs of a bacterial infection (washed my clothes in scented detergent by accident)... At this time I started my period which was at the end of the month. The last day of my period was on the first of last month which was march. I started my birth control I'll say on the 2nd, I kept it I'm for about a week or a week and a half if not 2 weeks. I decided to remove it because I was uncomfortable with the feeling.... After suddenly stopping, now today April 6th I have not seen my period. What are the possibilities of me being pregnant or could this been the after effects of the nuvaring for stopping suddenly..

Birth Control :: Skipping Period On Nuvaring?

I have absolutely horrific periods, my cramps are so bad I have to curl up in bed all day and take a muscle relaxant so I can make it through them. My doctor put me on Nuvaring and it's been giving me really intense headaches and nausea. I'm not a fan of being on medication of any sort but I can't live with my periods the way they are. I was wondering if putting Nuvaring in the week of my period (a few days before it starts) and keeping it in for a week (7-9 days) would prevent me from having a period. I realize this is not the intended use for it, but I would like to try it. Would this work to prevent me getting my period if I did it every month or would it start after I removed the ring after a week of use?

Birth Control :: NuvaRing Interaction With Amoxicillin?

I have been on the NuvaRing for about a year now and it is awesome. Thing is, I had issues from wisdom teeth and was put on Amoxicillin halfway through my cycle. Hubby and I did not have sex after I was put on the antibiotics, but I was wondering if there is anything to worry about for the week before I started taking it? Any chance it will mess up my cycle? I should start my period in a day or two and I usually feel cramps starting by now. Did the amoxicillin delay my period?

Birth Control :: Nuvaring Twisting - How To Insert It?

So I just had a baby 7 weeks ago and I was given the Nuvaring for birth control. I cannot seem to get it in far enough. When I do get it back there it immediately twists and comes down back to the opening. Is this normal? I am following the diagrams of how to insert it. I feel like my body is pushing it out, if that makes sense. Should I just switch to an IUD? Just wanting to know if I can't get it in properly if it's worth using.

Birth Control :: NuvaRing Slipping Out Or To The Opening

I would first like to point out i am not sexually nor do i plan to be!

I have recently started the NuvaRing, I put my first ring in 2 weeks ago. I honestly feel fine and don't seem to have any symptoms except some clear discharge, The only problem i seem to be experiencing is the ring slipping out or to the opening. I have read and watch tons of tutorials on how to insert the ring and im positive it's in properly i just can't seem to keep it in. I keep having to shove the ring back in whenever i urinate or sleep, I push the ring in as far as it will go and have checked with my finger that its around the cervix but its still only a half an inch to an inch away from the opening. Is this normal? What could be wrong?

Birth Control :: How Long Can Nuvaring Be Left Out?

I have been getting mixed answers on the internet about this. Yes, the website says as long as it has been no longer than 3 hours you are protected against pregnancy. But I have read 2 different situations that says about the 3 hours thing.

1. That it can be left out for 3 hours a day

2. It can be left out for 3 hours total for each ring.

I am just looking to clear this up. I don't want to be worried if I take it out for foreplay or intercourse.

Birth Control :: NuvaRing Missed Period!

I guess I should start at the beginning.  I was on Nuvaring and was always regular (even when not on BC),  I stopped Nuvaring Oct of 2015 due to having bad migraines, my gyn and I wanted to see if it was the cause.  Still had them, so in February of 2016 I restarted it.  I had a period the last week of Jan (was getting them every 2-3 weeks due to coming off of it).  I had it again the week of Feb 2.  I had protected sex Feb 5th and was still lightly bleeding then.  I started the ring a few days later.  That sign of my period the ring off week, so I took high doses of vitamin C to start it.  I bled really heavy for 5 days.  In March I had a very light period for 3 days.  And in April, it was so light it barely showed on a panty liner, only when I wiped or peed.  When I was previously on NuvaRing, I always had heavy periods and when not on BC heavy as well.  I have taken 8 tests- all which are negative including one last month.  I was going to test again, but I figure I'd have a positive and symptoms by now as I'd be about 14 weeks.

What could the problem be?  Hormones? Or a I pregnant and not showing on tests?  Should I discontinue the ring until I become regular?

Birth Control :: Nuvaring Constant Bleeding

I have always had problems with spotting on the pill, but never like this. I am on the nuvaring and have been for about a year. I have been trying to go 3 month continuously, and have always had spotting. However, last time it worked perfectly! I went through 3 rings with no spotting. I then got my period and began spotting just 3 days after my period had ending. the spotting has since turned into constant bleeding and clotting. I have contacted my doctor and they said to just go about my normal routine and see if it ends. however, it's been 1.5 months! Is my body doing this because I just can't skip cycles? And how protected am I now that I have this constant bleeding?

Birth Control :: Nuvaring Spotting- Should I Take Ring Out?

I have been using Nuvaring for a little over 3 years in the 4 weeks in 1 week out method. I always take it out on a Friday, get my period Monday night or Tuesday morning and it is tapering off by friday.

However last weekend I forgot to take out the ring on Friday & didn't take it out until Sunday. I know the ring isn't approved for more than 4 weeks of use but my period did come exactly 2 days later than usual on Thursday. I put a new ring in on Friday anyway and my period stopped by Saturday morning. But this morning I woke up to more bleeding. I have only ever had breakthrough bleeding when I tried to skip the withdrawal week & just insert a new ring. This breakthrough bleeding lasted about a week until I just took the ring out 1 week early (3 weeks in) & had a regular period. So basically I bled off and on for 2 weeks or so. It was really annoying. It's a different kind of blood, a darker brown color (as it was the only other time I had breakthrough bleeding). My partner is uncomfortable having sex on my period (old school I know but I find it a little less romantic having to take out a tampon mid way through foreplay & put a towel down beneath you too!). So, that just kind of makes this even more of a pain for me. I really don't want to have breakthrough bleeding for this whole month, but since last time I experienced it it stayed until my withdrawal week I just get the feeling that's what will happen. Should I just take the ring out for another week &a use a backup form of birth control?
