Hi, I am really confused about the way I am feeling. The side effects I've experienced since I dis-continued using the Nuvaring a month and a half ago, are really uncomfortable. I'd love to know if any of you have experienced what I am going through or if you can offer any advice...
First of all, I missed my second period. When I removed the ring, I had my normal period right away. I am now two weeks late for my second menstural cycle and took two pregnancy tests this week which were negative.
I've also been very tired, my breats are larger and more tender, I've gained a few pounds and I get dizzy spells. Since I'm not pregnant, and I haven't had my period yet, I can only attribute these symptoms to the fact that my body is no longer receiving the hormones that it was, and it just confused. My fatigue is really bad, however, and my dizzy spells concern me. Help!
i have had a similar experience. been on nuva ring about 3years and out of the middle of nowhere i just didnt get my period last month... pregnancy test and blood test negative, now getting worried and aexpecting my 2nd period any day now.. i am afraid it will not come. Not sure why this is happening. never missed a period in all this time on the nuva ring..very confused.
Hello i'm feeling exactly the same, bigger breast, really tender, almost like burning sensation on the nipples, more theleft one than the right one, super tired, i can sleep 14 hrs without a problem when 5-6 hrs before it was normal and nice for me. My hair is really greasy!!!my mood is different too. I was on he NV for 3 yrs and i loved it! i just removed it October 3rd and my period came right away. We're trying to have a baby and my 2nd period hasn't came yet! no signs of my period anywhere! i bought the fertility kit and said i ovulated! but i took 2 pregnancy tests and both negative! im late 3 days from my period when before i was on time before! This is really frustrating that i feel pregnant without really being one. I dont know for how long i will feel ths way, everybody goes through the same and nobody knows for how long, some get pregnant right away, some takes them couple months and some 1 yr! I really want a baby and not having my period doesnt help us at all! Good luck to everyody!
I'm having the same issue. Had my period after removing the ring. Next period was normal about a day late, this month I'm 6 days late, minor cramps, sensitive nipples, feeling bloated. I was on NuvaRing for about 3 years. Pregnancy tests have all been negative. It seems this is a somewhat common thing for NuvaRing users that stop?
Thanks above for sharing your story. Once again, the situation is the same with me. I have been on the Ring for 15 months. I removed the ring and had a normal period immediately following (period began Dec. 29) and now, as of Feb. 2, I have not had a period since. I too have had 3 negative pregnancy tests and even got a blood test (took all of these tests because I UNEXPECTEDLY/UNPLANNED conceived with my first child on the Nuvaring and was only off of it for 1 week, and used alternate contraception!!!)
For a few weeks now, I have had tender breasts, bloating, bad cramping, headaches, and I am incredibly fatigued.
This obviously is commom with the Ring. Thanks again for easing my concerns.
