NuvaRing

Soooo....

I've always had VERY normal cycles--I'm talking 30 days to the T. I went on NuvaRing for a year or two after coming off the pill because it regulated the pH and was easier to remember. DH and I decided to go off of BC in May. I had 3-4 months of VERY normal cycles again. And that's when I stopped. I have not had a period (ovulated) without the help of my Dr since August.

I've already seen my Dr and we're starting Clomid in January, but I'm just curious...has anyone heard of these issues with NuvaRing??

  • Thanks I! I'm not sure it was the BC, but you can never know for sure...
  • I was on Nuva ring and now I have Pcos. Don't know if there is a correlation but the Nuva ring is evil.

     Huh? 

    I would love to see scientific documentation of a correlation between the NuvaRing and PCOS. 

    Methinks that you should read a little more about your condition.

    Methinks you need better reading comprehension. She just SAID that she doesn't know if there is a correlation.

  • I was on it for the better part of a year and I had some issues - as in irregular periods. I don't think they skipped entirely, just very off.
    image
  • I stopped the ring in September and had my first period in December. I dont know yet if they will go right back to normal or if they will be all screwy. I had normal cycles before BC
  • I don't usually reply to boards, but you've almost exactly described my situation, so I figured I'd chime in.

    I was on Nuva Ring for about 3-4 years.  Before I got on it, like you said, I was always regular, since I was a teenager, every 28 days.  Once I got off, I was regular for a couple months, then it was very irregular.......every 8 weeks or so, light, heavy, etc.  I went to the doctor, first she told me to wait it out, when that didn't work I took progestrone for a month or so, that also didn't work.  I went back on another type of birth control (a pill) for 2 months.  Luckily that did the trick.  I was regular again after I got off that birth control. 

    It took us almost a year after I initially got off the Nuva Ring, but my husband and I got pregnant without any drugs or invasive procedures.  If you've only been off since May, you might want to talk to your doctor about some other options before going on Clomid. Good luck!

  • I got prego while on the NuvaRing!!! LOL... good luck to you!!

    Haha thanks! Methinks there isn't likely a correlation but I did have a normal periods prior to the nuva ring and for about 4 months after I got off the nuva ring and then suddenly didn't get it for 4 months. Sounds very similar to op's situation except after many many tests it was determined that I have PCOS. I said the Nuva ring was evil because I gained 20 pounds (which I lost within 7 months of being off it) my hair fell out (that could be the Pcos talking) I lost my sex drive and it gave me crazy mood swings and turned me into mega ***.

  • I was on it for a little over a year and had irregular cycles for about six months. I'm guessing it's just different in all women. Good luck though!
