There : There is no contraindication to using Clotrimazole vaginal cream ring while NuvaRing is in place. If you don't feel comfortable, you can try Fluconazole alone and monitor for resolution of your symptoms, and if the symptoms are still present then you can try the Clotrimazole cream. Best of luck.
