I would like to know how to deal with a hormonal imbalance after using nuva ring for 2 years.
@hinda Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to give and get support.
So that I can connect you with members and discussion appropriately, may I ask what you mean by hormone imbalance? What are the symptoms and their severity and duration?

I'm sleep deprived, Insomnia. I gained 10 lbs and even if I tried dieting the numbers on the scale wouldn't go down. my breasts are the same size now than It was after my baby when I nursed ( I usually go up 2 sizes). I never went down with a size or two as I did by my previous baby. I have pussy pimples on my upper body and neck
I do workout twice a week and walk for 3/4-hour almost every day.
Hi Hinda, You mentioned that you've tried dieting and that you exercise regularly. You might be interested in the discussions in the LCHF Living & Intermittent Fasting here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/lchf-living-intermittent-fasting/
I found this podcast episode 7 of Keto for Woman really informative about hormone imbalances.

Have you discontinued using the NuvaRing? Are you using birth control?
