Girl Talk: A Guy Found My Nuva Ring … Inside Of Me

I had tried all different kinds of birth control pills to help control my period pains over the course of three years, but nothing worked. There was still no relief from terrible cramps and heavy blood flow. My doctor suggested I try the NuvaRing, the once-a-month birth control device that is inserted into your vagina and secretes hormones for three weeks.

Quickies!: Fashion Shuns Bryant Park

  • Vera Wang, along with Betsey Johnson and Carmen Marc Valvo, has decided not to have a flashy fashion show at the Bryant Park tents during New York Fashion Week in February. We think this has less to do with being politically correct and more to do with financial security. [Perez Hilton]
  • A Pennsylvania couple was offended when a ShopRite refused to decorate their three-year-old son’s cake because his name is Adolf Hitler Campbell. Not surprisingly, money-grubbing Walmart took the order. [Dlisted]
  • NuvaRing users may have a greater risk of developing blood clots because of the type of progestin hormone used in the Ring. But only your doctor can tell you if you’re really at risk. [Dear Sugar]
  • Jodie Sweetin can only be with her 8-month-old daughter in her parents’ home or in the presence of her parents, a judge ruled on Wednesday after Sweetin’s estranged husband made substance abuse allegations. Let’s hope discussing her meth addiction didn’t make her long for the drug. [People.com]
  • It usually pays to be a nice girl this time of year, but sometimes it’s totally appropriate to be naughty. So feel free to put that flirty coworker in her place when she’s trying to get your man under the mistletoe. [Your Tango]
  • Men think that for women, sex is more emotional then physical, so any female indiscretion is cheating. Good thing they don’t know that sometimes we fantasize about other men while we’re having sex. [Asylum]
