Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 years ago):
All these events started one month after starting the NuvaRing and have persisted for the past 9 months. One month after the start of the NuvaRing ended up in the hospital with a severe kidney infection, infection was managed by IV antibiotics. After 7 days in the hospital I was released and have been in pain since. Primary symptoms: Chronic Hematuria, Severe Flank Pain, and chronic fatigue just to name a few. Two nephrologist have diagnosed LPHS a diagnosis of exclusion, however I strongly believe m adverse side effects were caused by the combination of the new start on the NR and the combination of IV antibiotics.
