IamA 19 year old woman who has suffered pulmonary embolisms from the use of Nuva Ring. AMA!
My short bio: I was on the birth control Nuva Ring for a long period of time due to my Endometriosis. I was hospitalized for 7 weeks and nearly died from these embolisms. Ask me anything!
Edit: I just recently had another diagnostic laparoscopy done just yesterday in order to remove a lot of the tissue that had grown back. Here are the pictures of my incisions!

I'm on pain meds so holding the camera steady to get a clear photo is a little difficult.
EDIT 2: Thank you to everyone for your kind words and concerns! I didn't expect this to blow up so quickly! I answered all the questions I could and am now going to go take a nice long nap :D Thanks again to you kind and some not so kind Redditors! :D
