Pcos and Nuvaring

hi i am 23 years old, and was diagnosed with PCOS about 6 years ago. i couldnt lose weight on my own so i had gastric by pass, and ive lost about 85 lbs in 3 months, i feel great, but that leads me to my issue. I was always treated with metformin and ortho tri cyclen lo for my PCOS. when i had the surgery i found out that birth control pills dont absorb into your system anymore and become ineffective, so i have to find an alternate form of birth control. my doctor wants me to try nuvaring but i have never tried it. i would like to know if people have had any issues when it came to nuvaring and their pcos.

Re: Pcos and Nuvaring

I used the Nuva ring for 2 or 3 years before I knew I had PCOS. Looking back, I don't recall any problems, if anything, it regulated my cycle. Unfortunately, I can't offer any information on how effective it is, as I needed assistance to get pregnant.
