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 (3 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.

  • Was given this drug to aid in passing kidney stones following a lithotripsy procedure. Everything was fine until the urine cleared and no stones or particles were present in the urine strainer. I haven't been able to leave the bathroom for about four hours because I can't stop peeing. Sometimes it is just a dribble but it has also flowed normal. Hopefully this wears off soon since it is keeping me from getting any rest.
