Im thinking that it is stress.  Nuvaring gives you a steady stream of low-dose hormones and tends to even out your mood and reduce mood swings

reptilelvr:  have you had issues with other hormonal BC methods (or tried any others)? i know i can not be on hormonal methods and feel myself.  i experience the same out of control emotional symptoms you’re describing and it sucks. it’s likely a combination of both though, planning can be SO stressful. could you switch to a different BC method and see how you feel?

I hated nuvaring. Sometimes birth control just doesn’t agree with you. Have you considered an Iud with no hormones like the Paraguard? Lasts for 10+yrs, zero hormones, and blocks the sperm. If you want to continue using hormonal birth control though, I’d try switching to something else. I used Mirena for 10+yrs with no issue until recently when I had some bad pelvic inflammation. I’m now on the nexplanon which has been as easy as the Mirena so far. I also like not having a period!! I think that likely your moodiness is a combination of things so if after 3 months you haven’t adjusted I’d consider switching it out.

Oh girl. I was a BASKET CASE on Nuvaring. Like to the point of almost ruining my relationship with my sister. Talk to your dr! i ended up going with paragard IUD bc I am so sensitive to hormones. 

other side effects i had: constant nausea, terrible headaches

It may be low hormone for some, but not for you! Good luck, OP!

I eventually stopped taking all hormonal birth control including NuvaRing because they make moody and miserable, like having PMS 24/7
