I was wondering what would happen if I took out my nuvaring 2 weeks early. I have been on it for about 3 months, ever since I started taking it, I have had very bad xerostomia, some depression and anxiety, low sex drive. I am finally fed up with these side effects and can't take it any longer. I was wondering if it would be more harmful to take it out 2 weeks early or just tough out these two weeks and then take it out when I am supposed to? I am just ready to be back to my normal self asap.
You can take it out any time. You may have some bleeding after its out. Just remember that you aren't protected from pregnancy. Have you ever had any other form of hormonal birth control? I'm just wondering if you had side effects from them.
Stick with condoms until you find something that works. Personally I would get back to the doctor and see what else. Can be done. After all, which is scarier? Unplanned pregnancy or taking a pill?
