Nuvaring/Hormonal Hot Flashes Interfering With Sleep

So, I started the Nuvaring on the 24th. I knew the changes were going to be tough, but since I started, I have been having incredibly sleepless nights, needing to sleep with an ice pack under my back every night in order to feel cool enough to get to sleep. Last night was the worst, having gone through two ice packs and finally giving up and moving to my parents' bedroom in order to get some form of sleep at around 7 in the morning. My room is usually a bit warmer than the rest of the house, due to placement, but it has never been this bad. I've tried a fan, air conditioning but nothing works to sleep in my own bed restfully.

I'm on my week off, and wondering if I should look into a new birth control or give the ring a couple more months time? What do you think? Has anyone else had this problem before?
