I just started the nuva ring and i was wondering what kinda side effects other people have experienced with it. More specifically has anyone had bad weight gain, headaches, and such. Also, has anyone experienced breast enlargement?

    I used it for over a year and loved it. It's the lowest dose of hormones so I had no side effect at all. the hormones are what prevent pregnancy, not like other forms that actually make you abort a baby each month you may get pregnant. It was the easist form of birth control I've ever used.

    I have experienced no side affects from nuvaring. I have been using it for a year and a half and I love it. The only problem I have (which I have with all b/c) is that I get headaches when the hormones stop. Fortunately I cut down to only 4 periods/year so that problem was reduced and since nuvaring works for 4 weeks it doesnt cost extra. The convenience is also a huge plus.
