How does it effect your sex drive? This is the main reason why I've looking into the Nuvaring. For those of you who have used it, how did it compare to other forms of HBC?
Did it increase your bleeding at all? I have endometriosis, and when I switched onto Microgynon-30, I had breakthrough bleeding for five weeks. My periods regularly last for nine days, and are typically quite heavy. I used to clot a lot while on Yasmin, which is why I stopped taking it. Also, can you continue to use the ring while bleeding? Can you insert it while you're still bleeding, or is it advisable to wait until the withdrawal bleeding has stopped? Is it okay to tampons while using the ring (this is probably a duh question, but hey).
Finally, how did it effect your moods? I get terrible, terrible PMS. I'm an emotional rollercoaster, which is part of the reason why I take HBC, to be honest. I cry at the drop of a hat, I'm paranoid, and frankly just not the best person to be around. I've been on HBC since I was sixteen, so I'm not too sure if I'm like this all the time or if it's just when I'm about to start bleeding. Does the Nuvaring help with this at all?
Thanks for the answers!
