Well I started the Nuvaring on the 17th of February, the first day of my period which is what the doctor told me to do. It is now the 7th of March, and Im still bleeding. Its very light, and brown in color. Last night I woke up feeling extremely sick... and today, I was vomiting. I know that it could be my body getting used to the birth control, but I have never ever had any side effects to any birth control or to any other medications for that matter. Could I be pregnant? Is there a chance?

Is February the first month that you started Nuvaring?Was you on it or another form of birthcontrol before this?If it is the first month of using any type of birthcontrol then yes there is a chance.Always use protection the first month of starting any kind of bc.

I never had any side effect when I was on the Nuvaring, even after my miscarriage. I used it from Feb till June & never had an issue - I would take an HPT, if its negative.. I would contact your OB to see if its just a bad reaction to the hormones.

Hi hun I've never used the nuva-ring but I haven't heard of any experiences like yours so far. Could it be possible that you've caught a sickness virus? The light bleeding is most likely down to your body geting used t the BC as you suspected but it might be worth asking your doc to be on the safe side x

I just came off NuvaRing. The very first priod I had using it (I started mid-cycle and that first time I kept a ring in during my period in an attempt to skip periods), I bled for almost 2 1/2 weeks. I ended up taking it out, waiting until my period was over, then replaced it with a new one. After that, I was able to skip every other period by going 4 weeks and immediately replacing with a new ring (rather than 3 weeks in, 1 week out). And when I did have periods, I would start with light spotting; at which time, I'd remove the ring, have a normal 5 day period, and then put in a new ring.

I think you are OK - I had the same problem when I started the Nuva Ring. Migraines, throwing up, spotting, some bodies have a hard time adjusting to the hormones. That said... After a couple months all of those symptoms went away and I really loved it, I think it is the best birth control ever, I had super light periods, no acne, no mood swings I even lost 30 pounds. Ah - I can't wait until I have a baby so I can go back on it!!!!
