Hey ladies! I just started my third month on Nuvaring and so far I LOVE it but I've been getting nausea and lots of tender breasts. When I googled it I found a ton of posts about women getting pregnant while on Nuvaring! Just wondering if any of you ladies got pregnant while on Nuvaring or know of anyone that did? Is it really as effective as they say?? Like I said I really love it and would like to keep using it but I don't want another baby right now and the side effects/symptoms keep freaking me out.
Ash - I did nuvaring before having kids and I had nausea and moodiness ever month. It wasn't until I stopped that I realized how bad it had been. And it wasn't until I got pregnant that I realized it felt exactly like morning sickness. I used it for a couple years without getting pregnant. Good luck.

Thanks Pico! I really do like it. I just hope that the symptoms go away soon. The nausea is really annoying and even with knowing it's a side effect it's still freaky. hahah
I have gotten pg on the bc pill, the bc patch (I don't even think they make those anymore now) and the mini pill. Side note it took clomid to get me pg this time go figure! But I was on nuva ring for a few years and never got pg once. I think the fact that you put it in and forget it for a month helped me out. I did have some side effects on it like nausea (I had this on other forms too), headache, etc. I'm sure there are people who got pg on it though so if you think you really are you should test.
I haven't but I have heard about the freaky side effects it can give you like what you're describing... Good luck!
