Recurring vaginitis and Nuvaring

So I've been on Nuvaring for about 4 years and loved it until recently. The freedom, and no need to worry about taking a pill everyday made me a happy girl. And as someone who has PCOS, going off of BC is unfortunately not an option for me.
But since May of this year I have been battling recurring cases of vaginitis - first a bacterial infection, then a yeast infection (from the antibiotics, probably), then the BV returned and as a result another yeast infection. repeat.
I didn't really notice any problems prior to May, but now I am getting tired of running to the doctor and the pharmacist every couple of weeks. Not to mention that this has adversely affected my sex life, too.
The question I'd like your opinion on is if I should consider switching birth control methods?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
