I don't think that safety is an issue but I did notice that things felt a little bit 'tight' in there during sex. But the doctor did mention that you can have it out for about an hour without risk if you feel uncomfortable.KillaLadY said:Actually, I DO have a question: so is it safe to have vigorous sexual intercourse with this?
It never hurt me. But sometimes I could feel it moving inside me and as I said, things just seemed tighter in there But that might add a little something?!KillaLadY said:Does it hurt during the intercourse? - like... do I feel it scratching... or whatever?
Yeah, I know what you mean. Because you don't even notice that you have the ring in, it is a challenge to remember to take it out. I've forgotten to take it out before, which really doesn't have any bad effects. I left it in for about 12 hours extra, and the result was that I got my period about a day later than usual.Michlerish said:I would have more of a problem remembering when 3 weeks was up, than remembering a pill everyday.
Certain pills make my skin worse, but things didn't get better or worse when I was using nuvaring. I think that the information pamphlet said that you will be less likely to experience negative side effects associated with birth control because of the lower levels of hormones in your blood.KillaLadY said:Did it have any effect on any physical changes (better skin, etc etc)
Lol, I'm not going to draw you a picture but there are plenty of pictures here: www.nuvaring.com.madnezz said:ok, so for those who are totally ignorant about this "ring", can someone answer some questions for me? (I know i could look it up, but its more fun to ask):
How does it work? How does it prevent pregnancy?
How long has it been around?
Is there chance for infection?
Can someone draw me a diagram?
