Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
just one part of my gums hurts and ive heard that can happen with hormonal birth control
From this study (4 weeks 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.
From this study (2 months ago):
Nuvaring was used in March 2013, early symptoms trace back to July, diagnosis of stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma was in November 2013
