TiffanyTheMom:I have a question for you Nuvaring users: could your partner 'feel' it inside you? When I asked my dr about it he said some people reported their partners could feel the ring up there and sometimes it dislodged.
hmm good question... we haven't tried it yet. lol
I used it when it was first put on the market and hated it because I could feel it almost all the time. DH (BF at the time) said he could feel it sometimes, but that it didn't really bother him.
I also hated it because I had frequent breakthrough bleeding while on it.
I hated the pill and switched over to NuvaRing when it FIRST came out. We tried having sex once or twice with it in, and I swear to you, my husband told me he felt like he was being stabbed! I felt it most of the time, which was strange, but he felt assaulted by it. Didn't work at all for us.
I had the Nuvaring before we decided to get pregnant and LOVED it. It's nice to just pop one in and forget about it for the rest of the month. DH never felt it.
No, but I went off of it and used condoms for a few months. My 3rd month of being off of it... we were in the heat of the moment and didn't use a condom... wah-lah... a baby!
Also, I could feel it more than he could during sex... but it can be out for like 3 hours without having an effect of the birth control part, so we just took it out during sex and put it back in right after...
I used it for 3 years, and loved it. I never felt it after first inserting it, and neither did DH. I didn't take it out until I was supposed to. Inserting it sometimes sucked, because it's shaped like a circle, and needs to be shaped more like an oval.
I also didn't get pregnant until going off it for over a year.
Nuvaring was one of the many forms of BC I tried before going off to ttc. I liked that I didn't have to take it every day, but my DH could certainly feel it during sex, and I could, too. It felt weird. I always had to take it out for sex, and it was annoying to have to put it back in. I just ended up going back on the pill, which worked much better for me now that I'm on a regular daily schedule.
I LOVED my whole experience with the Nuvaring. I was on it for 3 years and never had a problem.. DH never said he felt it and I loved the low dose, constant medication. With the pill I would get so sick to my stomach.
We got KU one month after going off the ring.
I used the ring for years with no issues however many times we also used condoms.
H's mind was more on having sex so he barely noticed it. When I first started using it I had nightmares of having sex and it would be around like a ring toss...
neither of us ever felt it when we were having sex . my dh did end up looking like we had played ring toss with it once, pretty funny. I just loved using it because I have always been really bad about remembering to take the pill every day
I have used the NuvaRing since it first came out on the market. I used it as directed (I read the small print on the insert that came with them) and did not get pregnant.
I asked my husband if he could feel it at all and he said he could not. Also, I never had one dislodge during sex.
Side note...I use a tampon applicator to insert the NuvaRing each month. This was a suggestion from my doctor to ensure that the ring was properly placed and would not dislodge during the month or sex.
