If your OBGYN ignores you then find a new one he/she is just one of those drs who don't care about your health just selling you prescriptions not only are they getting paid by you/insurance company there also getting paid by the company who makes there prescribed drugs / birthcontrol .... I would find a new doctor or change your method

I myself am incontinent as was fine before using the ring. It's embarassing and quite painful. I tried to discuss this with my doctor but was ignored/told Nuva ring doesn't cause infections at all!! I have been searching for information on others who've had the same the same issues as myself. I've only beebn on it for about 3 mos and am only 35 years old. I don't understand why my ob is ignoring my crys for help. Now I feel helpless and in serious pain whenever I drink anything, I got to run to the bathroom or put towels on my bed. I eat well and exercise...I don't understand how one drug can do so much damage! :(
