Paranoid about Effectivness of Nuva Ring

I really, really, really want to have sex without the hassle of using a condom. Unfortunately, I just can't trust the effectiveness of birth control. I don't know if it is just my perception, or the bias of search engines but I can find so many women that say they got pregnant on their BC even with religious use! Are there people here who have just used Nuva Ring and not become pregnant? I guess I need some reassurance. I am getting married in August, and for 5 years we have used hormonal BC and a condom, and we both want to ditch the condom.

I am worried about Nuva Ring effectiveness for the following reasons :
How do I know I am doing "typical" or "perfect" use? I always take it out and put it in at the same time on the right day, for my honeymoon I will have to re-insert a new one right after I take it out, So I don't bleed on my honeymoon.

I heard soy isoflavens (sp?)  can make your body ovulate even though you are on BC. My diet has a large amount of soy, and I mean a large amount, and I can't cut it down. My doctor said it shouldn't be a problem, but what about the article I read, so it's lying or my doctor just doesn't know?  I am also worried about my high intake of vitamin C.

What in the world went wrong for the Girls who's BC failed :(?
I feel like at this point I can't have sex happily ever. With a condom it will suck and without one and just BC I'll be paranoid. With an IUD I will worry about infections, and problems.

Also, I have had a history of:
  • Sharp chest pain and sudden shortness of breath (possible clot in the lung)
  • Crushing chest pain or heaviness in the chest (possible heart attack)
sometimes it has lasted almost an hour but it always goes away, and this makes me think I am taking a harmful risk when taking BC.

Please help!!!
