On nuva ring birth control. Stomach getting bigger, increase in breast size. Mild periods with cramps. Pregnancy chances?

I have been on the birth control nuva ring for almost 2 years now and here recently I have noticed my stomach has been getting larger and its tight. I have frequent urination, nausea, always tired, cravings, increase breast size and my breast are very tender. My husband and I quit using all other types of birth control except for my ring about 3 months ago. I still have my periods but I have been having painful cramps and I don't bleed that much, does it sound to you that I would be pregnant.

Thanks for the query.
Sometimes nuva ring can lead to side effects like nausea, bloating sensation etc.
If you didn't use it as per the schedule it may not give complete protection.
Though some of your symptoms are suggesting pregnancy, just by symptoms we cannot confirm or exclude the pregnancy.
So you better consult gynecologist and go for pregnancy test. if the test comes negative you can take symptomatic treatment.
If the symptoms persist after this also you can choose some other method of contraception.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
