So my g/f went to the gyno today and, long story short, she ended up with a prescription for the NuvaRing. I only know the basics about this form of b/c - in for 3 weeks, out for 1, >99% effective, low-dose of hormones. Beyond that, I don't really know a whole lot about it. Now, the g/f got all the information and has read up on it, but I'm looking for some personal experiences. Supposedly the risks of side effects (alterations of mood, breakthrough bleeding, headache, etc) are lower for the Ring than for the pill. Still, if any girls here are on/have been on the Ring or any guys had girlfriends using it, could you please share your experiences? I'm looking more in terms of side effects experienced, did it get in the way during sex, etc., or any other information that may be useful. *edit* Updates in posts 28 (4/23), 31 (4/27), 39 (5/11), and 45 (5/18).
