There used to be a coupon on the website for a free ring so you could just try it. I adore it for the same reasons mentioned - convenient, no worries about forgetting pills on/post call, flexibility (I usually run 2 rings back to back over 7-8 weeks), light periods (usually about 3 days for me), and I haven't ever "lost" it .
I asked hubby - he said he can't feel it. If I feel it, it's just not in far enough or flipped around right - sort of the same feeling when a tampon isn't in right.
Oh, and this probably sounds silly, but there are little stickers in the package for your calendar. I can be ditsy with life things, and it's helpful. Just like remembering the dog's hartgard - I love calendar stickers.
I'm yet another Nuva Ring lover! I have never lost it, though occasionally when I insert a new one I have to go back to the bathroom to reinsert because I don't get it in far enough the first time and I can feel it trying to slip out... But no problems. My husband does notice it during intercourse so I tend to take it out right beforehand, but it's safe to have out for up to three hours, so it's not a big deal. Also, my ob/gyn told me it's okay to go right from one ring to the other for up to three rings, skipping the monthly period. I do this, but I tend to start spotting near the end of the third ring. Anyway, I can't feel it, I don't have to think about it every day (or week, like the patch), so I think it's the greatest!
I'm also a user, and love the convienience/not having to think about it for weeks. I wear mine for 4 wks, so I only have a period every 5 wks. It does sometimes slip a little... just have to push it in further, no problem. My husband can't feel it during intercourse. With any hormonal contraceptives, you may have some spotting with the first few cycles... this usually goes away. NuvaRing is SO much more convenient than OCPs!
