I use NuvaRing and I think I felt some initial bloatiness (it is summer, so I often am more bloated anyway) but nothing of note in terms of weight gain. i’ve been on it for a few yeras now, so I would just say drink a lot more water than you’re used to. AND  if you’re having a lot of spotting, I would get checked out by a doctor…

I have been on it for about 3 or 4 years now, and I have gained weight, but I can’t say with certainty that it was all the ring or not.  There are a lot of other factors involved as well, so its really hard to pinpoint the cause. But, I am about to switch to the IUD, so if I start losing weight without exercise (I am going to try this first, just to see because I currently can’t work out yet).

I had a ton of problems with the Nuva Ring, weight gain included.  I was on it for about 2 years and should have stopped it long before I did.  I definitely gained a lot of weight (about 15 lbs) with no other change in diet or exercise.  It also made me EXTREMELY depressed.  I would cry constantly for no reason (I have never been super emotional).  I also lost my sex drive.  I have been off it for about 8 months now and am finally starting to feel like myself again.  I am still struggling to lose the weight though =(

I am sure that my body’s response to the ring is not the typical response.  I thought you should know the possible side effects though.
