I bought B&L Soflens 59 contact lenses online and they don't seem to hold moisture. Is it me or the contacts?

I bought them from justlenses.com. My eye guy tried to prescribe me Shopko brand lenses and wouldn't budge (and also tried to keep my prescription from me) so I opted to buy on the internet. He did give me a sample pair which I wore for about a month with no problems at all except a little dryness during extended lengths at the computer.
I opened the new box, put them in, and they immediately stuck to my eye. I put them in some solution for a week and tried again--again, they stick to my eye without floating on a layer of moisture like I'm used to. Eye drops don't seem to make any difference. My sample pair don't have this problem. Are these contacts shot or are they supposed to be like that?
Also, I wear NuvaRing, which apparently can cause intolerance to contact lenses. Why is this? Does anyone have any experience with this?
