Are condoms not your favorite choice of birth control?

After 3 weeks, you remove the ring, which brings on your period. After 7 days, you insert a new ring for another 3 weeks, and so the cycle goes.
What's cool about the NuvaRing is that it's monophasic, meaning it delivers a consistent and steady dose of hormones for 3 weeks, so you won't feel the annoying ups and downs you might experience with regular birth control pills. This is also a great option for women who love the consistency and effectiveness of the Pill, but have a hard time remembering to take it every day.
Remember that the NuvaRing does NOT protect you from STIs, so this form of birth control is best if you are in a monogomous relationship with someone who is STI-free.
I have some friends who swear by the NuvaRing and think it's the best thing since chocolate. What do you guys think? Do any of you use it?
