I recently started using the Nuvaring, I was worried at first at how it was going to affect me, i've been on different b/c and some have completely made sex un appealing, which was a huge problem for me and my relationship. When my boyfriend and I first dated we were overly sexual, I then did the depo shot, which ended up making me bleed for a 3 1/2 month period. Which caused the sexdrive to die down, I then tried lo-sensonique i think is how it was spelt, which the idea of only have a few periods a year was IDEAL after bleeding for 3 1/2 months from the depo, however I still had noticed that i was turned off of the idea of having sex I almost had to "pump myself up" to be sexual with my boyfriend - which isn't how I am at all, I am still very attacted to my boyfriend so it made no sense to me what was happening. Recently though, I switched to the nuvaring, which I've noticed almost as soon as it was in, that my sex drive was back in action, I googled to see if this was a side effect of the nuvaring, but like most I saw that MOST people had the opposite effect. So, it's hard to say what it will increase/decrease in you personally, but I absolutely love the Nuvaring so far.
