From The Pill to The Ring

From the time I was 18 I have been on and off The Pill. At 18 it was okay. I didn't seem to have any problem with it. I went off The Pill when I met me now husband. I had our daughter and 6 months after she was born I went back on The Pill. I started off trying Seasonique. You know the pill that only gives you four periods a year. Haha my ass! I bleed the just about whole three months I was taking it, not cool at all! So I went back on the regular ol' pill.
I was doing okay until the side affects kicked in. I for mood swings from hell. I was have been like the crazy mood swing lady. It was getting so bad that I was snapping at everyone and I couldn't control it. I would feel so bad after I would just set and cry. Then I lost all of my sex drive. I mean all of it. It was to the point where it was affecting my marriage. My poor hubby has been through a lot with me and this was coming to the breaking point for him.
So yesterday I went to the doctor and told her something had to change. I have been doing my research and I found that NuvaRing was low hormone and lower side affects.

I haven't tried it yet. I have a week of The Pill to finish. Then I'm diving head first into the NuvaRing. I have heard good and bad about it, so I'm trying it for myself.
Has anyone used it or know anyone who has used it? Comments are definitely welcome!

I use the ring. I have been using it now for going on 5 years. I took it out to have my daughter 2 1/2 years ago and got right back on it afterwards. I like the ring because it is not a daily thing and you still get your periods every 3 weeks. I have to set a reminder on my calendar on when to take it out and put in a new one so I don't forget. But I haven't had any issues with it.

I used it a long time ago. I noticed an excess of fluid down there (sorry TMI, just trying to help!) which bothered me. Otherwise it was good!
