I'm probably just over thinking things as usual, but regardless I am gonna ask anyway. I've been on the ring for about 3 or 4 years now. Most the time just using it to skip periods while I'm on vacation rather than a birth control, if you get my drift. But recently I had sex with my boyfriend during my off week (still keeping to schedule) and now I'm experiencing light-headedness and some pretty bad pain in both my hips about a week later. Awful habit of self dignosis on the Internet said, you have bone cancer, (jk) and those are early signs of pregnancy. I'm taking it with a grain of salt but still I would appreciate your thoughts. Cause I'm always thinking of that 1 in 100 rule.
Do not ever consult google looking for something serious as you can pick and choose your symptoms. The simplest explanation is usually correct. If you had bilateral hip/pelvic cancer that was symptomatic I would be telling you that I'm sorry but you are a terminal patient. You would be better of googling the type of sex you had and see if you have caused muscular or tendon strain.
Finally, enjoy your holiday as there are just not that many credible medical sites on the internet. Two that I tend to use, use medical terminology and journal references (some of which have free access) but are not for the layperson at all.
If it continues, see your doctor.
