Hey guys. I went to my gyno today for birth control. I had been on ortho tri-cyclin years back but the nausea and vomitting it caused was not worth the pro's of birth control, and seriously deterred me from hormonal birth control all together. My doctor prescribed my nuva ring and seriously sung its praises. She said the girls at the office all love it, it's got the lowest incidency of nausea, and it doesn't pass through the GI tract (I'm a gastric bypass patient - so my risk of getting pregnant on the pill would be much higher than the average Jane). I have my period now - and she said I could insert it now, but a tampon may be uncomfortable with it - so if I want to continue wearing a tampon, I should wait until my period becomes light enough to wear a panty liner or until it's finished completely. I'm wondering what your experiences are with the nuva ring? Comfortable? Easy to insert/remove? Thank you!
