I'm on NuvaRing right now. I decided to get on it because it's a hassle to remember to take the pill at the same time every day. It's like being confined to a schedule. I got on NuvaRing on the 15th of August. I can't say much of a review on it since I just began using it but so far I'm uncomfortable with having to adjust it every day. I went to the bathroom and had to adjust because I felt it at the opening of my vagina when wiping. I'm paranoid that my partner will feel it too when we engage in intercourse. I'd like to go on Nexplanon. Great tool right? Implant in your arm that is good for 3 years? Who wouldn't? But I'm seeing some HUGE red flags with experiences. I've never had acne, I've always had clear skin. I've also never had weight issues. I've stayed the same weight consistently throughout the years (107lbs). I'm a bit scared to go on this so convenient contraception. Would be great to wake up and not have to remember to take anything. Please someone let me know that there is a light at the end of this tunnel before I consider changing birth control.
If the Ring is falling out, then you haven't inserted it correctly where it should be. If your partner feels it, it's either not in far enough or your partner has an above-average sized member. Remember that not every woman has every side effect from different birth control methods. You may be better off getting one of the newer hormonal IUD's. They lessen period bleeding over time until some women (like I did) don't get a period at all. Also, they are THE most effective temporary birth control on the market today (99.9% effective) and they use a FAR lower dose of hormones as the hormones can work directly on the uterus. This is not to say that you cannot have systemic side effects from these IUD's but the side effects usually last only for the first 3 months or so. They are good for 3-5 years, depending on the brand/type. They are soft and flexible, not hard like older ones or copper based IUD's.
I personally don't trust the implantable birth control because they use the same hormones as Depo-Provera shot, I believe. Depo was black labeled so it cannot be used longer than 3 years straight as it was causing bone loss in young women. And, they've also had loads of issues removing the implants from women, leaving them with scarring.
That's all the information I can come up with at the moment!
