Experience

The vaginal Ring influenced my mood a lot and I was diagnosed with Depression. The symptoms of Depression stopped when I stopped using this contraception. I lost my Libido which also did not change after I stopped using the ring. The gynecologist said that there ist a hormonal imbalance in my vagina, so the skin is more sensitive and not as thick and I dont produce enough lubricant so Sex is very painful for me. The use of the contraception was convenient since I did not have to remember it all the time but having a Ring in your Vagina at all times isnt as pleasant either. The Side effects like spotting, loss of Libido, hormonal imbalance, Depression and emotional instability were not worth it.

Experience after taking

The vaginal ring caused a hormonal imbalance in my body. Because of that I dont produce enough lubricant and the skin in my vagina is too thin so Sex is very painful for me. I never had this problem before using the ring and I also dont have traumatic experiences.
