Comments from related studies:
From this study (9 hours ago):
tool aviane at 8 am this morning for the first time. by 12 pm my entire buttocks and lower back are covered in a red raised rash but doe not itch.
From this study (2 days ago):
I am epileptic or was as a child. I have not had a seizure in about 3 - 4 years now. I recently went to have my implant changed. This is my third one. All of a suddeni am experiencing frequent déjà vus, headaches and my anxiety is growing.
I eat incredibly healthily and exercise most days. No drugs, hardly any alcohol and a strong life.
Realising that perhaps my implant may have something to do with this and I have just never realised it!
From this study (2 days ago):
For the past 1 1/2 - 2 years my lips will swell and go down, swell and go down. Nothing has seemed to bring this about and the spots where the swelling takes place seems to vary.
I recently read an article posted by BC Global News about the Nuva Ring and new side effects that should be reviewed by a physician, one being lip swelling. When reading this a light went off for me as I have been experiencing this for such a long time now. Not only is this annucense for me but I causes great discomfort.
