Just stopped nuvaring

Hi. Well I'm 19 and iv been on nuvaring since I was 16 (I started it because I was having VERY severe period cramps the kind that would make me feel like passing out) any way it helped tremendously. I was a very active high school athlete a great body.. Most of my friends envied my body back then. But since then I have gained 50lbs and nothing I do is helping lose the weight. I have a lot of stomach flab stretch marks from hell and my self esteem is zero. I don't even feel comfortable in front of my boyfriend of 4 years. I'm moody most of the time I don't even feel like being touched. I hate myself because of how I look. The only thing good about nuvaring is it did away with the cramps and it made my cycle very regular and I didn't have to remember to take it everyday. Well I was just wanting some warnings I guess on what I might expect from you girls who have stopped nuvaring.. This was really taking a toll on my relationship with my amazing boyfriend he's had to put up with a lot. If y'all wouldn't mind telling me what y'all expdierenced that would be great...

Ps. I do not plan on getting back on any birth control any time soon (except for condoms of course)

Hey there,
Your story is almost IDENTICAL to mine!! I had been on the nuvaring during my 4 years of high school. Just got off it this past spring. I normally weigh around 120. I am 160!!! My diet has not changed...at all. I get how you feel with the hole bf situation. It is so frustrating.
