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! :(

- Nuvaring causing pcos leading to early menopause
I am 28 years old and diagnosed with severe PCOS after 2 years of using the nuvaring..since I found that out I stopped using the nuvaring however the damage is already done... Now I'm being told the PCOS has thrown me into early menopause, proven by my serum hormone levels... This is a real life changer considering my husband and I were attempting to have one last child at no prevail, won't happen thanks to nuvaring!
- Claritin 24 hour causing bladder control loss in child. not a lot of information out there on this.
Helped his cough and don't know whether to try Zyrtec or something like that. Tried Benadryl for couple of days and no help with cough and so far no il side effect including bladder control
- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
