I started Nuvaring for the first time over a week ago on the first day of my cycle like recommended. My period usually last 5 days but I'm going on 9 days now. I haven't been on any form of birth control since before starting my family which has been about 5 years now. Is my body just getting used to the hormones? More importantly, will the bleeding subside? Other than the bleeding I don't have any complaints about nuvaring.
