Hello,


Hi I wanted to know the disadvantages of vaginal ring?

I made use of this as a contraception method and I do not like the side effects. I am gaining weight and I have sex drive problems.

Anyone one else having these side effects? I have my menstruations regularly each time I remove it.

In fact, I use it. At first it seemed fine, but soon I had vaginal irritation and it burned during intercourse. I also has loss of libido.

Since I stopped using it everything is back to normal, except the weight gain that I cannot lose.

I do not use the pill and I am much better.
