What Are the Side Effects Caused by Stopping NuvaRing?

When a woman stops using NuvaRing, she may experience some side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, water retention, weight gain, painful menstrual periods, vaginal bleeding in between periods, ankle or feet swelling, bloating, tender breasts and headaches according to WebMD and NuvaRing's official site. There are other more serious problems that can occur during NuvaRing use or after stopping NuvaRing use including liver problems, gallbladder problems, angioedema and blood clots.

If a woman experiences several of these side effects then she should contact her doctor right away and schedule an appointment. Side effects should not be ignored in case they are a symptom of the more dangerous side effects.
