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! :(

From this study (2 weeks ago):
Seizures began 2 years after a MVA with a mild concussion, as Grand Mal. They reduced in severity to absence seizures with current medication regimen. I experience severe mood swings and have become so agitated I was committed to a mental health facility for evaluation at one time. Recently I awoke to find my left hand in a severe contracture. I had spent the previous day in 105 degree weather, unaware of the temperature due to my seizure medications. I am curious to know if this is drug related or an acute sign of MS.
