The vaginal ring is great if you can't remember to take something every day but want all the benefits of oestrogen (which can help manage PMS, acne, PCOS and endometriosis). It may also be better at controlling breakthrough bleeding than the combined pill.

I really loved using the ring, compared to the pill the side effects were minimal and absolutely no bother in remembering it. Unfortunately my doctor just made me come off it as my blood pressure has steadily gone up over 3 years of using it. I did experience loss of sex drive, and vaginal dryness which led to thrush infections. But no changes in mood or skin!

Love the Nuvaring. Hardly have to think about changing it. I can get the odd bit of breakthrough bleeding if I don't take my 7 day break. Overall, I'm a big fan!

I've been using the ring for almost a year now and so far it's been working rlly well for me. I pretty much forget it's there when it's in and its rlly easy to change. It's the first hormonal contraceptive I've used so I was extremely apprehensive about it but slowly I've got used to the idea and now it's just a normal part of my routine. The side effects I've experience are minimal and very manageable. A slight decrease in sex drive particularly a couple of months in, and a very slight increase in weight but both are managable and Ive gotten used to. My periods are really regular and I have very little period pain which is great. I would really recommend giving this method a go, overall I'm very glad I did.

I didn't have any bad experience with the nuvaring while using it but I stopped 6 years ago and i've had problems with my periods ever since... when I stopped, i was having spotting for 9-10 days before my period, my doctor told me everything would be back to normal after about 3 months, but it's been 6 years. It gradually got better, now i only have 1 to 3 days of spotting before my period. I don't know if the ring caused it but it's getting better and better since i stopped using hormones that's why i think it might be linked.

Unfortunately this contraception made me feel very sad! It led to a continuous low mood, of which I have experienced with the pill previously. I basically just cried a lot for two months and so decided to stop using it. I liked that this could be a short term solution (more short term than the coil) and it was easy to insert/remove. It was not uncomfortable.

Best contraceptive I’ve tried so far, and love that I only need to change every 3 weeks!! Unlike the pill, no mood disturbance, weight changes, skin changes! (had previously used the 3rd gen pills, which were much better than the others which made me hungry and depressed. I used gestodene, for 10 years, then switched to yaz for 5 - was better than gestodene - then a GP friend told me about the nuvaring)

I really love using the ring, I was hesitant at first because I thought I might be able to feel it when it’s in place, but I honestly forget it’s there, and don’t even notice it during sex. My periods have almost completely stopped, I just sometimes get a bit of spotting around the time I change the ring.

I've been using NuvaRing in the past and I was most content, so when getting a new long term partner now it was my first choice. I'm currently on my 4th ring. 1st month was messy due to prolonged bleeding, but now I'm not having any side effects except vaginal dryness, which became pretty prominent and has very negative impact on my sex life. Aside of that, I'm very happy with this method (cumulative 5 years of experience)

I have been using the Nuvaring for just over a month now and so far have been very happy with it. It's really hard to tell if it has effected my mood at all but I haven't experienced any noticeable or extreme mood swings so far. I felt a little rough in the break week where I had my period (but I usually feel down around then) and have found it's eased my anxiety around unplanned pregnancy so in that way has effected my mood positively. I actually found it super easy to put in and I can't feel it at all once it's in there. I used the 4 day method, taking it out after 3 weeks. It took a couple days for my period to come and then it was lighter than usual, lasting a couple days and then with quite a bit of spotting the rest of the week. I have experience no noticeable physical symptoms at all such as headaches or nausea. My favourite thing about it is that it doesn't feel very medical. I was very anxious about taking a pill so having a totally different experience and using something that you can take out at any point gives me a feeling of control and autonomy. I would recommend giving it a go and seeing if it's right for you!

Great service. The process is straightforward and even if you don't know what you want/need there's a handy questionnaire available and if further support is needed there is the option to book an appointment with a clinician. Prices are fair and depend on the brand and length of subscription. Also the process of cancelling the subscription is very straightforward and transparent. Thanks.

🎉😍 Quickest delivery ever and so easy to use. I won’t go into detail but let’s just say I was bloody delighted to not have to go into the intimate detail of my sex life with my GP to get the actual pill I know works for me rather than the generic version they keep trying to push!

I saw your online prescription service and placed my first order this weekend. I love the convenience and want to support a business which has taught me something new about a pill I’ve been taking for 15 years! Knowledge is power and The Lowdown are empowering people to make more informed choices than previously possible.

Just placed my order for Levest and I wanted to thank you for making life so much easier! Working full time and being a lone parent can take over so thank you, thank you for creating such a fantastic, easy and fast service! You have really helped with the anxiety of securing contraception.

I think this is the type of company the UK has needed for a long time. Making contraception easy and seamless to get is a huge advancement on what we’ve had before. I currently live in the UAE where you can buy contraception over the counter and have always been shocked by how easy it was here in comparison to the UK.

Time, efficiency and discretion are the three factors why I purchase my contraceptives online - especially during the pandemic when it was almost impossible to book GP appointments.

I wanted to say thank you for creating an easy to use platform for contraception. I have been on the pill on and off for almost 20 years and have had so many issues getting the one that works for me, dealing with Dr's who spoke to my husband (as if I wasn't in the room) about how I might be better on an implant, trying to get the coil and being told it just won't fit etc.

I order with yourselves because I felt like my opinions and queries were not being heard by my doctors surgery, when I found out about The Lowdown and that it was a service passionate about finding the right contraceptives for the individual, speaking to doctor fran I finally felt heard and my feelings validated, so I'd rather pay for your services from a company that actually cares than go back to my doctors surgery where I didn't feel heard.
