I got one! Yesterday! I was on depo, but hated it after the first three months, which were okay. It turned me into a crazy woman
Can’t put it in until Sunday, though - it goes on the same schedule as most regular pills, where you start on sunday.
So, I wear this ring for three weeks, then take it out for one week so I get my period, then start over again.
It’s more expensive than the pill ($24 for one ring/one month at Planned Parenthood - not sure if my insurance covers it, but I wanted to start this Sunday so I forked over the cash for it as I am going away this weekend and won’t be able to get to the pharmacy).
It seems odd that a little rubbery ring can protect me from pregnancy as well as the pill, but it has the same effectiveness rates, and uses the same hormones as most pills.
As a bonus, the lovely doctor at Planned Parenthood also wrote a prescription for Ortho Tricyclen so I don’t have to come back if I don’t like the ring.
Anybody else use this method? It sounded pretty good to me, the side effects are supposed to be comparable to ortho tricyclen, which I’ve used before with much success.
