O.k. well after being on the ring for over a month now I know it's working right. I got my period when it was supposed to and all.
Just a few more questions,
There is spotting pretty much all month long, kinda crappy... will that go away?
Also the week that your not on the ring and your period is supposed to come, are you protected against pregnancy or not? I would think so, but not sure. I know you need another method to protect against STDs and such but I want to make sure the back up method here is also there as well.
I have been on the ring for a week now. About 4 days ago I got very nauseated...all day. First thought it was the wine from the night before. But then still four days later..soooo nauseated, bad taste in my mouth and today diarrhea...TMI? Anyway, could it be I am having a bad reaction to the ring? Years ago one type of birth control pill made me feel nauseated and pregnant-like too. I read that some nausea..though rare...with the ring. Any ideas appreciated.
