I only use it for convenience too, but it really is nice to time your cycle as well as have lighter periods.
Hmmmmmm, the beautiful thing about the Nuvaring is that it is 1/80th the amount of hormones that you would otherwise take orally to get the same effect. I tend to be really sensitive to BC (i get that crawling out of my skin feeling) and I actually use the Nuvaring to regulate my cycle since I am peri-meno not for pregnancy prevention. I didn't notice any weight gain at all and actually had a bit of a loss of appetite which resulted in some weight loss so I was actually grateful *lol* My trainer and gyno always remind me that anything 9 pounds and under is usually water weight lost or gained not muscle or fat... so maybe try upping your water intake for a bit (causing a flushing action) and maybe it will resolve itself.
I am an avid cyclist who is also the co-owner and buyer for Low Country Multisport a performance specific F.I.S.T. certified fit studio and repair shop in the beautiful Lowcountry of South Carolina. And, I just happen to be married to a retired Marine who is completely addicted to the iron distance. "lord help my wallet!!"
