I'm not on nuvaring anymore, but I was using it about 4 years ago before my wedding when I was dieting and working out constantly and it didn't cause me to gain any weight at all. I've been on several different kinds of birth control (the pill, the pill low dose, depo shot, nuva ring) etc and of all of them nuva ring was my favourite because I didn't have any side effects on it at all. Weight gain is a possible side effect with any hormonal birth control but it isn't guaranteed. The only way to find out if it is any good for you is to give it a try! If you don't like it, you can take it out at any time and any side effects should disappear quickly.
