  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for Birth control)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.015 mg-0.120 mg Monthly
Advice & Tips: Means I don't have to remember to take a pill daily. Considering how many drugs I do take, this seems kind of unimportant, but I can forget to take those on occasion and be fine, whereas I can't as easily with birth control. So it's nice that I can put this in once a month and ignore it until I need to take it out again.

Advice & Tips: Using this medication when you have a cervix might be worth it better, but the problem that I was having wasn't the fact that it didn't work but it wouldn't stay put. I don't have a cervix so I don't have those muscles to keep the ring in, so it was very difficult to do. I had to switch medications for this reason.
