Toward the end of July I took out my Nuvaring and discontinued my use of it because of all the side affects that I have recently become aware of. I am not on any other type of BC at the moment but for the last week or more my nipples have been EXTREMELY sore..so sore that a touch makes me cringe and back away immediately. After removing the Nuvaring, I got my period from July 29th-Aug 1 so I am due to get it again in about a week. I would think that maybe the nipple soreness is associated with my oncoming period but NEVER ONCE have my boobs been affected by my menstrual cycle. On top of the nipple soreness, I am constantly tired. Even if I sleep all night, I have trouble waking up and want to take a nap within hours of being awake. I should be losing weight now that I am off the hormones but instead I am gaining weight and my boyfriend mentioned how much I am eating the other day. PLEASE someone tell me what else these could all be besides the obvious baby diagnosis.
