I have started using the Nuvaring on July 18 2009 and I loved it. It has been just slightly over a week since i started it. I noticed about 3-4 days into using the ring I was very very frequently urinating. I am even getting up 2-3 times a night to urinate. It is very annoying! I am a stylist and trying to work and this problem is very hard to deal with at work. I went back to the gyn and she said that i should not be having this problem with the ring and told me to reposition it. Well, I did and still am having the issue. I really dont want to go off of the ring because I like not taking anything everyday and only having to think about it once a month. So, if anyone has any suggestions or inputs they would be greatly appriciated. Thanks!

If your doctor doesn’t have any more advice than to try repositioning it, I don’t know what else to tell you than to hang in there! I would give yourself more than just these almost two weeks to get used to it. When I used the ring I found that I did need to fiddle with it repeatedly to position it comfortably.
If this really doesn’t work for you, there are other long-term hormonal bc methods that have been discussed around here (IUD, for example). Good luck and I hope you feel better 🙂

I have been on the ring for 5+ years and never had or heard of this! I’m so sorry! You definetly need to give it time, 1-2 cycles before you are fully use to it. What concerns me about “repositioning” it, especially a few times, you are opening yourself up for an infection. Have you checked with your doctor that maybe this is a coincidence and that there maybe an underlying issue like a UTI or bladder infection? I hope everything turns out ok bc the ring is wonderful! Good luck!

Thats what I thought is that I needed to give myself some more time to get use to it. I did have a urine test and I didnt have a UTI. But, I do have a history of kidney stones. Maybe I should see if maybe I am getting another kidney stone.
