I really didn't know that the NuvaRing would make u gain major weight like the depo shot, but someone told me that it does, so i just want to know how much did u gain while on the NR beacuse I'm really not looking forward to the weight gain.

I began nuva ring this past September because I was having difficulty remembering to take the pill every day, especially at the same time. I've been on nuva ring now for a little over three months and all I have to say is NEVER AGAIN. I'm a little over 5'4 and have always weighed between 135-140 most of my adult life. I got on the scale after noticing a considerable increase in my breast size and decrease in my ability to fit into my clothes. 159!!! Same diet, same exercise. I've been dieting for the past few weeks and no weight loss, just same old breast tenderness. I'm going back to the pill...if any of you are wondering, Kariva is a great generic daily bc pill.
Good luck!!

I lost weight when I started on the NR. Then again I also started a "sexercize" program! (*wink wink*) Sex is great exercise! It's the ONLY thing that you do that actually works every single muscle in your body at the same time! So get the ring and start "sexercising"!!

I love the ring. Best BC I have ever used in my life. I would totally recommend it to anyone, granted I am not a physician and can't prescribe it and everyone's body reacts differently to all medication.

Nuva Ring is great!! I did gain a small amount of weight from it and it made my breasts bigger,the best thing about it is you put it in and forget about it. No worrying about taking a pill every day.

It's too bad that IUC's (Interuterine Contraceptive) have such a bad rap in this country. They are a safe, potentially hormone free, NO NEED FOR MEMORY contraceptive device. I use Mirena which has a low dose of hormone, but you can also go with ParaGuard which has no hormones. Best thing of all, your dr puts it in and you are good to go for 5-10 YEARS. If you change your mind, just have it removed. So simple, yet not marketed by drs or manufactures because they don't have that monthly sale...

I was on the Nuva Ring for awhile but I didn't care for it. It never felt like it was in there just right (be careful putting it in and getting it out if you have nails!). It came out on me a time or two as well. It just wasn't for me. I'm on Implanon now and it's working out well so far. It's three years worth of birth control that is stuck in your arm so you don't have to think about it at all. Good luck!

I didn't gain any on Nuvaring...don't think that's one of it's major side effects.

I gained over 20 pounds on the NuvaRing and when I got off of it, it was hard to lose the weight. I am currently using the copper IUD and besides extra cramps...i like the no hormonal effects. Everyone's different though!

I didn't gain any weight at all. I have tried pills and other forms of b.c. b4 eventually getting my tubes tied, but I have to speak highly of the NuvaRing. I was painless and I didn't have to think....yeah

i didnt gain weight with it. i was also told by a nurse that depo doesnt make u gain weight, it just in creases your appetite and its up to u to resist the cravings.

I used the NuvaRing before getting pregnant and didn't notice weight gain, but I was on the Depo before that and gained a few pounds, but not a lot. My body tolerated both fairly well. I recommended those to friends but they all had issues. I personally prefer the ring. Least side effects, easy to use.
