Nuva ring side effects

Unlike some other birth control options, such as oral contraceptives or an intrauterine device, NuvaRing comes with very minimal side effects, most of which are rare or completely benign. This makes the NuvaRing one of the most effective forms of birth control with some of the least repercussions - a perfect combination for anyone looking for an alternative to their current form of birth control.

Although NuvaRing is a hormonal style birth control, similar to “The Pill,” it lacks one major side effect that is present in just about every type of oral contraceptive on the market - weight gain. NuvaRing is completely weight neutral, so you can’t blame any added weight on this contraceptive.

The most common side effect that people experience with the NuvaRing is what is known as a foreign body sensation. This is the feeling as if there is something strange inside of you. While this sensation may be mildly annoying at its worst, it is certainly more benign than infection or inflammation of the heart as is sometimes the case with intrauterine devices. Other common side effects of the NuvaRing include sinusitis, headaches, diarrhea, vaginitis, and an increased possibility of developing a respiratory tract infection. While these side effects are annoying, none are particularly life threatening.
