I have been on the Nuvaring for 4 months now and this past month I started bleeding almost a full week before taking the ring out... has anyone else had issues with breakthrough bleeding on Nuvaring? I am considering changing birth control now because I do not want to be having periods that are nearly two weeks! Anyone have any suggestions for a good method of birth control?
They didn't say... the first four months were great, no issues at all! Then when I started to bleed early I called my OB and the nurse just said to leave it in until it is time to remove it, and that it wasn't a big deal, I was just having some breakthrough bleeding for some reason. I am hoping this doesn't happen again. I even suspected pregnancy, since I always have implantation bleeding, but all the HPT's are negative, Thank God! So I am maybe thinking it could have something to do with some new meds I am on for migraines. My neurologist has been trying a lot of new meds and the bleeding started the day after I started this steroids he put me on, so I am hoping maybe that interferes with the Nuvaring or something.
