I've been using the NuvaRing for over a year now and I LOVE it. You leave the ring in for three weeks and then take it out for one week to have your period; you can't feel it at all and you can even have relations with it in though I don't like to and just pull it out real quick, but I've not had any of the usual BC side effects (weight gain, acne, etc) and I'm still not pregnant so it must be good :) And you can even put a new ring in on the fourth week if you want to skip your period.
