I didn't like the nuvaring. I always feel obligated to share, because everyone I know loves it. I have extreme breast pain, break through bleeding even when I wasn't using it 4 weeks with no break, vaginal irritation, no sex drive, painful acne and some other side effects. The plus was that it didn't make me nauseaus. I had issues with every pill I tried too, so I think the hormones just don't agree with me. I used it for 6 months and eventually went off of all hormones.
