    I've heard great things about the nuva ring If I was to use a synthetic hormone it would be this one

    I wasn't a fan of the Nuva ring. I had break through bleeding, it made my vagina really dry and it usually came out during sex and was left around DF's penis haha! You can wash it off and put it back in if that happens though.

    I loved the Nuva ring, as i can't handle the pill either, so the low dose at the site of the action worked perfectly - no hormonal issues. I had none of the issues VonZipper had, appart from DH ended up wearing it occasionally lol. Even so, that doesn't interfere with its effectiveness, as it is still a hormone method, not physical barrier. My Gyno said it could even be removed immediately prior to sex & put back in again straight after, if i was at all embarrassed about it accidently appearing during sex. I'd highly recommend you give it a try! Really easy to put in too.

    BUT...so embarrassing, it kept falling out!! I mean like a dozen times a day!! I had my Gyno check that i was putting it in properly, but yeah, apparently my vag is an odd shape lol. So for the past 4+ years we've used cycle+withdrawal method very successfully.

    TMI: Since having DS, i feel like its a different shape up in there, so i might give the Nuva ring another try.

    I'm another one who loved the Nuvaring. Didn't have to worry about missed pills and absorption problems, and found it had fewer side effects than pills. I'm going to go back on once I stop breastfeeding.

    I'm actually liking condoms. (Or maybe I've just convinced myself that so I don't get annoyed by them!)
    I can't/won't tolerate the side effects of hormonals, and I really like that DP is actively involved in the whole contraception thing with condoms, as opposed to it being all on me.

    I didn't know that much about the nuva ring though, so thanks for the info everyone, I'll keep it in mind if I want to switch!
