As with any form of birth control, the NuvaRing® has been linked to several side effects including spotting and mid-cycle bleeding.
Spotting While Using the NuvaRing®
One of the potential side effects of NuvaRing® use is mid-cycle bleeding. In most cases, spotting between periods will be minimal and should decrease overtime. However, in some cases, women who are using the NuvaRing® as a form of contraceptive will experience bleeding for no apparent reason and at random times.
If you are a NuvaRing® user and you begin to experience severe vaginal bleeding between periods, you should seek medical attention from your doctor. Although light vaginal spotting is common, severe bleeding may be a symptom of another serious medical condition.
NuvaRing® Reviews: Spotting and Other Side Effects
One of the most common complaints among NuvaRing® users is breakthrough bleeding. While this isn't a life-threatening side effect, it can be rather annoying and embarrassing. Women who complained of spotting while using the NuvaRing® also complained of other side effects, including:
- Vaginal discharge
- Yeast infections and vaginal burning
- Extreme moodiness
- Decreased sex drive
- Chronic fatigue
- Nausea, vomiting, bloating
- Weight gain
- Back pain and muscle aches
- Migraine headaches
In some cases, women who have used the NuvaRing® have developed life-threatening conditions such as heart attack, stroke, blood clots and breast cancer. if you experience any abnormal symptoms while using the NuvaRing® (or any other type of birth control), you should visit your doctor immediately.
How Does the NuvaRing® Work?
The NuvaRing® is a flexible ring that is inserted into the vagina for three weeks at a time. The muscles in the vaginal walls hold the ring in place. By slowly releasing a combination of estrogen and progestin, the ring is 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy.
