I starting using nuvaring after a miscarriage. I didn’t want to get pregnant without planning. After aprox 3 years using it with no side effects I had a schemic stroke. I was 28 years old. Almost killed me, I was in intensive care for one week. Stroke left me with sequelae, I am in pain all the time (left side of my body) 24/7 365 days a year. I have been taking medication for 11 years now, I am 40 years. I can’t have kids. I wish someone advice me of side effects of contraception the day I decided to start using it. Nuvaring destroyed my life.
