i had a history of acute episodic depression that was well under control and no longer needed any meds. i was happy, i was out going, emotionally stable. and not on birth control, in fact i hadn't been on any birth control for about three years. my body hates it. i get fat, i get pimples, i get moody, and become the bitch from hell. so clearly i was hesitant when i went back on birth control, my obgyn advised me that the technology has changed and that the nuvaring was a localized birth control and wont affect my behavior or my body's phisiology. WRONG!!!!!
i started nuvaring on January 15th and took it out ten days later because i was spotting (which is not normal for me). in that ten days, i have been the basket case from hell. i cant stand myself!!! i totally ruined my happy relationship with a great guy, ive been crying, waking up in the middle of the night with nocturnal panic attacks, sweating, crying, thinking irrationally as well as starving and craving junk food... ive gained some weight which i think is all water weight and not the brownies ive been cramming in my mouth at 2 am every morning which will hopefully burn off quickly. ive started looking into therapy thinking that ive fallen back into my previous depression, and the worst of it all is that i have had and am still having the heaviest period of my life!!! i dont know what is going on, but ive never had spotting in my life, ive never had a heavy period like this in my life! nor the clots as well... sorry for the graphics, but this is disturbing to me. i thought i was having a miscarriage until i called a girlfriend of mine and she said she thought she way dying when she took out her ring. is anyone else having the period from hell with this thing?
